Marshfield Building Project: We’ve Moved February 20, 2018

We’ve Moved!

Forward Bank Welcomes You- New Headquarters in Marshfield


Forward Bank completed their move from 207 W. 6th Street, Marshfield  to their new headquarter building located at 1001 N. Central Ave., Marshfield. 


This beautiful new facility is the culmination of over 2 years of planning and hard work by many people inside the Forward Family and all the local contractors we used during the process.


Our new building is not like any other in the area, just as our team and approach to community banking is quite different! We have included more edgy design elements that you see more in tech companies, more brightness, and more new technology. We’ve also added features like the sit-to-stand desks, coffee bar, and expanded fitness center for our staff and employees that will be working for the businesses joining us in the building in April.


This will be a place all our employees visit for training. It is also going to become a place that different groups in the community can come to learn from us during seminars and other bank events. It is our hope that it becomes a centerpiece for this community.


Welcome home!

On the third floor, a suite of offices is being furnished for area businesses or visiting professionals to lease one office at a time. The single office lease structure is ideal for a start-up business or small manufacturer needing office space to meet with prospects. It is also perfect for professional service providers that would like to have hours in Marshfield on a weekly basis.

This area has a common reception and shared conference room. Tenants will have access to the fitness center, community meeting room, lower level employee lounge, and patio for lunches. Utilities will be paid for by the bank.
