More Employees on the Move!

We have more employees on the move! Kade was recently promoted to Operations Support Assistant and Adam was promoted to Commercial Loan Officer. Both employees continue to grow in their banking knowledge and desire to help our customers every day. Congratulations to Kade and Adam!

President’s Message

I am very pleased to announce some current updates to our leadership and lending team. As part of our Bank’s long term planning process, Jerome Bennett has been promoted to the role of Bank President, and Rick Bothwell has been promoted to the role of Chief Credit Officer and head of the Loan department. I will continue as CEO and Chairman of the Board. So technically this is a message from the past President!

This is formalizing what has been taking place for some time as I have been gradually moving away from some day-to-day duties and more towards semi-retirement. Our Board felt it was time to appropriately recognize Jerome and Rick for the expanded roles they have taken on in the process. As long-time customers might recall, I took over as President after Bud Kirk retired over 34 years ago. Congratulations to both Jerome and Rick!

By the time you read this, we will have “gone live” with the Bank’s core system upgrade. This will include some nice technology enhancements as we continue to seek ways to provide excellent customer service. As with any change, both our staff and our customers will have a learning curve that we are working hard on to make as small as possible.

Stay safe and warm as cooler temperatures seem to be upon us.
