Meet Joleen Mittelstadt: Home Federal's Newest Vice President and Director of Human Resources
All of us at Home Federal are thrilled to welcome Joleen Mittelstadt to our executive team! Joleen joined us June 2019 and is taking on the important role of Vice President / Director of Human Resources at our corporate headquarters in Rochester, MN.
Joleen has been in the human resources field for more than 18 years with 14 of those years being in the banking industry. Her experience in banking started with Eastwood Bank as the HR Director where, as an executive leader, she was responsible for the HR department and actively involved in bank strategy for almost 10 years. Most recently she was a Senior HR Manager for Bremer Bank.
Joleen has local roots, growing up on a farm south of Spring Valley, Minnesota. She currently lives in Racine, Minnesota with her husband, John, their two children, two dogs (a German Shepard and a Cockapoo), and two outdoor 4-H rabbits.
When we asked Joleen what led her to her new position with Home Federal, she responded with, "I have passion for community banking and chose Home Federal where the heart of our clients is in everything we do!" In her new role, Joleen will be responsible for human resource strategy, employee recruitment and development, and benefits management for all branch and corporate locations. You'll find her partnering alongside team members in various roles throughout the organization in her (what we hope to be) long and rewarding career ahead with her new Home Federal family!
