(517) 592-1060 Email Rick
Bass guitarist, history buff, sports enthusiast
Rick Northrup has lived in Dexter, Michigan for over 20 years. He and his wife, Dawn, love living in Dexter because of its good people, vitality, and beautiful scenery. There is a liveliness that permeates the Ann Arbor area with the various events, shows, and get-togethers it has to offer. Rick and Dawn believe there is nothing like living in a Midwest college town and find it to be the best place to raise a family. They have raised their two boys here, Colin and Graham, who are now in their 20’s and living their best lives. In addition, Kellie the house cat, and Denver, Colin's service dog, are Rick's furry members of the family.
As the President and CEO of Bank Michigan, Rick has a busy work week. In his free time, he enjoys playing the bass guitar and learning about history. Relaxation for Rick is watching sports, particularly college football and major league baseball. In Rick’s opinion, the greatest way to pass the time is to read, especially when traveling. He frequently reads the Travis McGee series by John J. Macdonald, which consists of 21 thrillers. Rick has read every single book, some of them more than once. His favorite show to watch when he has the time, is MythBusters. He has seen every single episode. When the holidays come around, you can bet Rick will be watching his favorite Christmas movie— Die Hard.
Rick finds his role at Bank Michigan to be the ultimate career fulfillment. He considers himself extremely privileged to be able to work with a team of smart, talented, and interesting people who work hard to support their community. He appreciates the efforts of everyone that makes Bank Michigan great, from the bank staff, customers, and vendors. This network of support creates connections to turn frustrations into fortunes. At Bank Michigan, there is always something to learn, a laugh to be shared, and positive energy to boost productivity.
