Wims Appointed President at Iowa State Savings Bank Annual Meetings

Knoxville —  

On January 24, 2013 the Iowa State Savings Bank held its annual stockholder and director meetings to review the prior year’s activities, elect members of the board, appoint officers and plan for the future.

 

At the shareholder’s meeting bank CEO Stuart Job acknowledged his appreciation for the bank’s staff who, “have done an excellent job of maintaining their focus on customer service.  By any measure – number of customers, asset size, deposits – our bank continues to grow.  This is a direct reflection of the excellent customer experience the staff delivers.”   

 

Job outlined how community-focused banks are again being viewed for the strength that those local roots provide. “All things tend to go in cycles, and I am pleased to see that excellent service, experienced people, reliably delivered products and community involvement are back in style, and that these attributes are again being valued above sheer size.”

 

During business at the shareholders meeting the bank’s five board members were reelected:  Robert C. Wims, James L. Hollingshead, Chris K. Hoegh, Patrick J. Weiler and Stuart L. Job as Chairman.  

 

At the board’s annual meeting Robert C. Wims was promoted to the office of President.  Wims has been Executive Vice President of the bank since 1984.  Job stated that, “the change in Bob’s title is public recognition of the level of responsibility he carries and of the level of trust the shareholders have in him.  Bob’s day-to-day duties in the areas of lending, deposits, investments and operations are truly better described with the title of President.”   

 

Chartered 110 years ago, the Iowa State Savings offers a full array of financial services to Knoxville, Melcher-Dallas and the surrounding area.
