Growing up in a ranching family and learning the trade from an early age, it was inevitable that Brent Fix would find himself working in a career supporting both farmers and ranchers in the same region of the country that Brent calls home. Brent’s ranching roots are just down the road from Dakota West’s Bowman branch, where Brent first joined our Dakota West family 2 years ago. Now, Brent is joining our New England branch as well! He will continue assisting our members and community in the ag industry in both Bowman and New England.
A big fan of summer, Brent finds time while the sun is high to fish, golf, or just ride in the saddle. But when it’s time to get down to business, Brent supports our ag members from southwest North Dakota. His education brings his love of the land back to our members as an ag loan officer surrounded by the sunflowers and wheat fields of Hettinger and Bowman counties.
Brent tackled a double major (Financial Services and Banking, plus Business Administration) from the University of Mary and admits that he enjoys a good challenge. Although he confesses to enjoying public speaking, he also values the importance of listening, and spends a good part of daily activities finding ways to develop relationships with our ag-based members in the corner of the state.
Most farmers in the ag industry spend the latter part of the winter preparing for the coming season, whether planning for the spring planting, or anticipating the arrival of new livestock to join the herd. Brent will be working likewise, to provide the support and structure farmers and ranchers need to carry their operation into the next cycle. Members of the ag community can reach out to Brent at 701.444.7304 to include Dakota West in those upcoming plans. We are ready to listen.
