Cole Keney

Senior Business Advisor


Cole’s entire banking career has been with Alerus. He started working for Alerus in 2003 as a part-time employee while in college and since has continued to develop, grow, and learn new skills resulting in several promotions.

In his current role of senior business advisor, Cole is the primary point of contact for his customers — a “general practitioner” of banking. He is at the center of the customer relationship and takes the time to understand the in-depth needs of his customers. Cole focuses on the best way to help customers achieve their financial goals by providing competitive products, valuable insight, sound advice, and when needed, draws upon the expertise of the organization to arrive at the best solution for the customer. Cole takes great pride in working with customers and does whatever he can to be there for his customers.

Cole currently serves on the board of directors for the North Central Chapter of the RMA and belongs to the Fargo-Moorhead AM Rotary Club. He also is a past ambassador for the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo Chamber of Commerce, and a past board member for Rebuilding Together. In 2016, he was named to Prairie Business Magazine’s “40 under 40” list. A native of Bismarck, Cole now lives in Fargo with his wife, Missy, and their two daughters.
