Eau Claire banker, community leader announces retirement

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. A long time Eau Claire banker and community leader has announced he's retiring after 42 years in the business.

Bill Kaiser started in the banking business in 1971 as a teller. Wednesday the Eau Claire native celebrated his retirement as banking manager at BMO Harris Bank.

Many recognize Kaiser as a longtime community leader. He has served on the board of the Friends of Sacred Heart Hospital, and he is a former chairman of the United Way of the Greater Chippewa Valley.

Kaiser says a lot has changed in the financial world since he started and he will miss all of his customers.

"It's difficult. The two things that will be difficult are leaving the people I work with and leaving the customers that I developed relationships with over the years," says Kaiser.

In his retirement, Kaiser says, he plans to devote more time to helping non-profits including the United Way, Sacred Heart Hospital, and the Eau Claire Chamber of Commerce.
