River Valley now IncredibleBank

WAUSAU — River Valley Bank has been renamed as IncredibleBank.

The concept of having an incredible bank took shape in 2009 when River Valley launched a digital-only web bank called IncredibleBank.

Todd Nagel, president and CEO of the bank who has been leading the transition, said the transition is about changing the “optics of banking.”

“We’re literally trying to get customers to ‘their incredible,’ whether it’s a mortgage, a new business loan, better insurance coverage or even a luxury motorcoach. What we say to them is, ‘We’re not just here to help you start something incredible, we’re here to help you finish it.'”
