Julie A. Beitelspacher – 2021 3rd Quarter Boss of the Quarter Nominated by Primebank Employees Primebank would like to honor Julie Beitelspacher as the LeMars Area Chamber of Commerce 2021 3rd Quarter Boss of the Quarter. In 1974, when Julie began her career in Primebank’s Bookkeeping Department, little did she realize she was embarking on what would become a lifelong career in banking. Following a break to raise her family, Julie returned to Primebank in 1990 working first in the Bank’s teller area, and then in the Loan Servicing Department. Eventually becoming a Customer Service Representative, Julie is now Vice President and head of Primebank’s LeMars Deposit Department. With responsibilities encompassing both the Bank’s teller area, as well as the Bank’s customer service area, Julie supervises a dozen other employees while also assisting Primebank’s customers with their banking needs. A very positive and upbeat role model, Julie takes a personal and caring approach in supervising her staff. With communication being key, Julie is always approachable, making herself available to her staff at all times. Supportive not just of her staff but of the entire bank, Julie is often known to show her appreciation through food. Whether it be a potluck, an employee’s birthday, or “just because,” Julie can be counted on for sharing one of her tasty treats. After over 31 years of service to Primebank, Julie will soon be retiring. While happy for Julie as she embarks on this new chapter in her life, it is also with sadness that Julie’s colleagues and co-workers prepare for her retirement. While others will step in to fill the void created by Julie’s departure, no one will be able to replace her as a boss, a co-worker, and a friend. For these reasons we choose to honor Julie Beitelspacher with the LeMars Area Chamber of Commerce 2021 3rd Quarter Boss of the Quarter award. Congratulations!
