Toltzman began his banking career with Marshfield Savings and Loan on Feb.1, 1967. In 1969, he became a member of the board of directors, serving on various committees.
He started in lending in 1975, working with home, home improvement, and personal loans. In 1993, Marshfield Savings and Loan changed its charter to Marshfield Savings Bank. Four years later, Toltzman became CEO and president, a position he held until Jan. 2005. He assumed the position of chairman of the board, until June 2015, and now continues as a board director of what is now Forward Bank.
“Orin’s leadership throughout the years has helped shape the organization into the community-focused bank it is today,” commented Bill Sennholz, president and CEO of Forward Bank. “His continued energy and involvement at the Board level is something that our entire staff looks up to. We are continually thankful that we have him as a resource for our growing organization and as a mentor to younger members of our team.”
Toltzman was honored at the WBA Bank Executives Conference in Madison on Feb. 6. He was recognized, along with seven other inductees, into the WBA’s 50-Year Club.
