The strategic mission and vision for Community State Bank will remain the same and be achieved in a steady, conservative, forward-thinking manner. Mike’s extensive banking experience and his energy and passion for community banking combined with great character was the leadership the Board was seeking.” said Jessica Tice, Chairman of the Board of Directors.
