MARQUETTE CAPITAL BANK OPENS ITS DOORS JUNE 14

 MINNEAPOLIS, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Marquette Bancshares, which oversees the Marquette Banks in Minnesota, announced today that its newest bank, Marquette Capital Bank, will open for business June 14.
 Marquette Capital Bank is the latest addition to the privately held Pohlad banking organization, and will stress highly personalized financial services for businesses and individuals.
 Initially, Marquette Capital Bank will open its doors on the first floor of the IDS Crystal Court in downtown Minneapolis. Plans call for a permanent 6,000 square-foot convenience center on the second floor (skyway level) of the same building opening later this year. Offices, along with business and private banking facilities, will also open July 6 on the 40th floor of the Dain Bosworth Plaza in downtown Minneapolis.
 The opening marks the return of the Pohlad family to banking in downtown Minneapolis following the sale of Marquette Bank Minneapolis to First Bank System in 1992.
 "Marquette Capital Bank will be a strong complement to other Marquette Banks," said Thomas Jenkins, president of Marquette Capital Bank. "All Marquette Banks provide exceptional service for both retail and small business customers; Marquette Capital Bank will focus on customers who expect their banker to act as a financial adviser. We consider our customers to be business partners, and our goal is to build long-term relationships, not just to build an account base."
 According to Jenkins, Marquette Capital Bank will be "more responsive to what our customers need. We believe in a small-bank philosophy, supported by the resources of the Marquette and Pohlad banking organization. Customers know Marquette Banks as responsive and innovative; a place where they deal directly with decision makers. That tradition will continue."
 Jenkins said the bank will target owner-operated businesses as a key market. "We believe there are a number of business owners in the Twin Cities who have an appreciation of our type of entrepreneurship, and who are looking for an experienced financial resource. Though we're technically a 'new' bank, we have one of the most experienced groups of bankers in the Twin Cities.
 "Our ownership has a long tradition of entrepreneurship. That gives us a unique perspective on the needs of successful businesses and individuals, and we believe there's a strong market for the financial expertise and highly personalized services that we offer," Jenkins said.
 Marquette Capital Bank is part of Marquette Bancshares, Inc., a privately held, 11-bank holding company based in Minneapolis. It is affiliated with Marquette Bank in Rochester, Minn., and recently entered an agreement to purchase First Bank Coon Rapids. As of Dec. 31, 1992, Marquette Bancshares, Inc. and Marquette Bank Rochester had combined assets of $970 million. Marquette Bancshares, Inc. is the fourth largest commercial bank holding company in Minnesota.
