Meet Barry at Midwest Bank. Barry is the Market President at our York Branch and has been with Midwest Bank for almost 15 years. Barry was born and raised in York, Nebraska, attended York High School, and then graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University.
Before beginning his career at Midwest Bank, Barry worked in the banking industry for 24 years following college. He started at Midwest Bank as a Senior Vice President and then became Market President. In his current role, he oversees the daily operations of the York branch as well as spends a lot of his time focused on lending and business development.
If you’re thinking about switching banks or looking for a more hometown bank, come on over to Midwest Bank, you’ll like how you’re treated, and we’ll be your financial partner forever.
We asked Barry to tell us what the best thing is about working at Midwest Bank after all these years. He said, “We’re surrounded by good people. We continue to grow which is great, but it still has a smaller, hometown feel.”
When Barry isn’t working, he loves spending time with his family, his wife, Annie, their daughter, and their 9-month-old Goldendoodle, named Fern. Barry also enjoys golfing, a good bourbon, cheering on the Chiefs, and his hidden talent is making pasta. His favorite destination to visit is Hilton Head and he says he just took his dream vacation golfing in Scotland. But he would like to visit Ireland too someday. But, ultimately, his favorite place to be is right at home in York, but maybe spend the winters somewhere warmer.
We asked Barry to explain why banking at a community bank is different from banking at a bigger bank. He explains, “We’re all about relationships. We really get to know you as our client and that personal relationship is such a benefit.” He goes on to say, “If you’re thinking about switching banks or looking for a more hometown bank, come on over to Midwest Bank, you’ll like how you’re treated, and we’ll be your financial partner forever.”
When asked to describe Midwest Bank in three words, Barry said “Family. Integrity. Fulfillment.”
