President & CEO
Dwight’s banking career spans nearly four decades, where his industry experiences have included bank management, regulatory affairs and education.
In 2019, Larsen became the third president to take the helm at UBB since it was founded in 1975 as the nation’s first bankers’ bank providing correspondent services exclusively to independent community banks.
Dwight held several positions at UBB from 2000 to 2016, including roles overseeing compliance services, trust services, HR consulting services and the stock valuation services of BankValue Advisory Services. Under Larsen’s direction, BankValue expanded its bank stock valuations, market analysis, and merger and acquisition consulting service to customers throughout UBB’s 22-state market area. During this tenure, Dwight was also the chair of UBB’s Asset Liability Management and Enterprise Risk Management committees.
From 1986 to 2000, and again from 2017 to August of 2019, Larsen served as a national bank examiner with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). There he built extensive knowledge in risk management and effective corporate governance working with banks of every size and with every level of management and operations.
Dwight was a faculty member of the Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin – Madison from 1998-2021. In addition to teaching, Larsen was a member of the Curriculum Advisory Committee and a faculty representative to the Board of Trustees.
Larsen received his Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of St. Thomas, Saint Paul, Minnesota.
