April 17, 2014 - Sturgeon Bay, WI
Ditewig, Assistant Vice President and Executive Secretary of
Baylake Bank and Baylake Corp., is retiring after a 45-year
career with the organization.
Ditewig began working at (then) Bank of Sturgeon Bay in 1968 as
a Switchboard Operator, Safe Deposit Box Attendant, and
assisting in Loan Documentation and Administration. In 1977,
Nancy was promoted to Assistant Cashier and Loan Officer where
she worked with customers primarily helping them with home
loans. During that same year, she also started working as an
assistant to T.L. Herlache when he became Chief Executive
Officer. She was later named Executive Assistant and worked with
Mr. Herlache until his retirement. Since that time she has
worked in the same capacity with current Chief Executive Officer
and President Robert J. Cera.
“It has been a pleasure working with Nancy. She is a true
professional who has been a knowledgeable go-to for our
shareholders, Board of Directors, and entire company, and she
has delivered impeccable results,” Cera said. “We wish Nancy all
the best in the future, and congratulate her on a great career
at Baylake Bank.”
In addition to her work as executive assistant, Nancy began
helping with shareholder administration in the late 1980s. Nancy
eventually took over these responsibilities, and became the main
point of contact for Baylake Corp. shareholders throughout the
remainder of her career. Her last day of work at Baylake is
Friday, April 18, 2014.
“My career at Baylake Bank has been rewarding and I am thankful
for the friendships I have had with coworkers, customers, and
board members. I am also looking forward to spending more time
with family and enjoying a variety of hobbies during my
retirement,” Ditewig said.
Baylake Bank serves Northeast Wisconsin from 21 community
financial centers throughout Brown, Door, Kewaunee, and
Outagamie Counties. Baylake Corp. is the holding company for
