Willmar Welcomes African Development Center of MN's Newest Office

Along with other business, nonprofit and community leaders in Willmar, Bremer Bank celebrated the African Development Center of Minnesota's newest location & satellite office with grand opening festivities on September 15.

Here are some great photos of the event from ADC’s website, as well as a couple of snapshots I took and include here: ADC Executive Director, Hussein Samatar speaking to attendees, and Bremer Bank Willmar President, MaryAnn Doyle with ADC’s Willmar Emerging Markets Manager, Abdirizak “Zak” Mahboub enjoying the opportunity to meet and greet.

ADC recently purchased and renovated the space in downtown Willmar at 518 Litchfield Ave. SW to serve the growing communities of New Americans in the Willmar, St. Cloud and Marshall areas with financial literacy and business development services. Bremer has appreciated the partnerships we’ve enjoyed with ADC through its staff and headquarters in Minneapolis, and now heartily welcome them to Willmar! We look forward to new and continuing projects with ADC and its customers.
