Bank Iowa Celebrates 30-Year Tenure of Team member

April 7, 2022


Community Members are encouraged to send cards for Sherri Achen’s retirement. 

Bank Iowa’s teller, Sherri Achen, will retire from Bank Iowa on April 15. Achen has served the Lawler region of Iowa’s second-largest family-owned bank for more than 30 years. 


“Sherri has demonstrated Bank Iowa’s purpose to empower people, inspire success and foster growth for the last 30 years,” said Brian Carolan, Bank Iowa regional president. “We will miss her willingness to learn and grow and her commitment to serve our clients with a positive attitude.”


Throughout her tenure, Achen served as a teller. Since 1991, Achen witnessed the Northeast region of Bank Iowa grow from $70 million in deposits to $200 million today. She was one of the early team members at Bank Iowa’s location in Lawler, originally called State Bank of Lawler. Bank Iowa now serves 23 communities.

“I am going to miss talking with all of the customers that I’ve had the opportunity to get to know over the years,” said Achen. “I will also miss the friendships I have developed with my fellow team members and being a part of the community events going on.”


Bank Iowa is asking team members who wish to celebrate Achen’s retirement to send her a card before April 15. All cards can be sent to the following address:
