Veteran bank leader joins board of MidWestOne in Iowa

MidWestOne Finacial Group in Iowa City recruited a banking veteran with ties to its CEO to join its board.

The $6.7 billion-asset company said in a press release that Carl Chaney was one of three new board members. Cheney, a former president and CEO of Hancock Whitney, was chairman of Beach Bancorp in Florida when Chip Reeves, MidWestOne’s CEO, ran that bank.

Beach was sold to First Bancshares in Hattiesburg, Miss.

The other new directors are Azeemuddin Ahmed, executive vice chair at the University of Iowa Department of Emergency Medicine, and Wesley Hartig, CEO of MedOne Pharmacy Benefit Solutions.
