Lincoln Bancorp in Iowa hires former Five Star exec as CEO

Lincoln Bancorp in Waterloo, Iowa, has recruited a banker from New York to serve as its next CEO.

The parent of the $1.9 billion-asset Lincoln Savings Bank said in a press release that Sean Willett will take on the new role on Dec. 29.

Willett recently served as chief administrative officer at Five Star Bank. He succeeded Emily Girsch, who served as interim CEO and will return to her previous role as chief financial officer.

Lincoln worked with Travillian for the search.

“I am committed to building upon the solid foundation that Emily Girsch and the entire team have established,” Willett said in the release. “Together, we will drive profitability, growth, and continued success for our employees, customers, and shareholders.”
