The $559 million-asset company said in a press release Tuesday that Earl Worley Jr. had also become KS Bank’s president. He succeeded Harold Keen, who will remain president and CEO of the company and is executive chairman of the bank.
Worley was the bank’s chief operating officer. He served as the bank’s chief financial officer from 1999 until 2010.
Dit Breault, KS Bank’s senior operations officer, will succeed Worley as the bank’s chief operating officer. Breault joined the bank in July.
