The regional president and CEO of First National Bank – who started his career with the organization in Houston – announced last week that he was retiring after 20 years to concentrate on health concerns and his family.
Roger Hunt began his career with First National Bank in 1987 as president of the Houston and Licking banks and was promoted to overall president in 2001. During this time, the bank grew significantly, becoming the largest privately owned bank in south central Missouri with more than $270 million in assets.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Roger for his many years of service, dedication and leadership,” said owner Mark Landrum, whose family has had continuous majority ownership of the bank for 98 years. “Roger has made significant contributions to the bank and the communities we serve.”
Dan Corman and Logan Dale have been repositioned to take Hunt’s place.
Promoted to president, business banking, is Dan Corman. He was formerly executive vice president and senior loan officer. He has been with the bank for 12 years and is a member of the board of directors. His responsibilities will include the growth and development of the bank’s commercial lines of business.
Promoted to president, personal banking, is Dale, who also is president of First National Bank-Houston. He has been with First National Bank for 13 years and will begin serving on the board of directors. His responsibilities will include the growth and development of retail products and services. Dale and his wife, Shanna, reside in Houston with their three children.
Additionally, Joyce James, president, First National Bank-West Plains, assumes the added duty of Howell County market manager. In her combined role she will oversee the management of the bank’s Mountain View, West Plains and Willow Springs locations and will also serve on the board of directors.
Established in 1904, First National Bank is located in Cabool, Houston, Licking, Mountain View, West Plains and Willow Springs.
