Marathon Bank announced today the promotion of Michelle Knopf to Chief Operating Officer (COO). Michelle brings over 30 years of valuable experience in the banking industry, most recently serving as Marathon Bank’s Director of Mortgage Services.

During her tenure at Marathon Bank, Michelle has played a key role in the bank’s growth, particularly its expansion into Southeast Wisconsin. While her expertise lies in the mortgage business with decades of experience, her skillset extends far beyond that, encompassing commercial lending, operations, and regulatory compliance.

“I’m thrilled to take on these additional responsibilities and continue serving Marathon Bank’s customers,” said Knopf. “Officially assuming executive oversight of other areas within the bank is a privilege, and I deeply appreciate the trust and support from the CEO and Board of Directors.”

“Since joining Marathon Bank in 2018, Michelle has been an invaluable asset,” said Nicholas W. Zillges, CEO of Marathon Bank and Marathon Bancorp, Inc. “Her expertise and experience across all areas of banking are truly irreplaceable. Her promotion to this senior leadership role will undoubtedly have a significant positive impact on the bank, benefiting both our customers and shareholders.”

Prior to joining Marathon Bank, Michelle served as a Vice President at Intercity Bank, where she managed commercial banking business development, the mortgage department, and customer relationships.
