Kevin Powers, the Bank’s President and CEO said Millard is the perfect fit for the position. “He has a very unique skillset he will bring to the table with both credit underwriting and loan production experience. We are excited about this promotion and look forward to continued growth and leadership from Paul.”

Now I have the opportunity to utilize what I have learned for the bank’s next chapter with Kevin Powers at the helm.”
