David Chinnery Elected to Consecutively Serve on Two Missouri Bankers Association Boards
BLUE SPRINGS, MO. (September 10, 2013) — David Chinnery, Adams Dairy Bank (ADB) president and CEO, has been elected to the board of directors for the Missouri Bankers Association (MBA) Service Corporation, a subsidiary of the MBA. He has taken his seat and attended his first meeting as a board member on August 6th.
The Service Corporation was established over 30 years ago when the MBA began expanding its services to member banks beyond its legislative and educational programs. Volunteer Missouri bankers in upper management serving on the board of directors lead the Service Corporation, reviewing products and services that may be offered to member banks.
David is also a member elect to the MBA’s board of directors. As the principal advocate for the Missouri banking industry, the MBA focuses on providing products and services that best benefit its members. The membership consists of commercial banks and savings and loan associations representing over 2,000 banking locations and over 30,000 bank employees across the state.
MBA’s board of directors is responsible for guiding the association’s and its subsidiary corporations policies regarding organization and finances, education, and member services. Directors are nominated and elected by member banks in each geographic region.
Both boards are charged with evaluating the economic, political, regulatory and educational needs of the industry and developing positions, products, services, and programs to respond to those needs.
“As much as it’s an honor to be elected to the boards, it’s an even bigger responsibility. We’re navigating a quick-changing regulatory environment while balancing banks’ services and performance with customers’ expectations. Serving on the boards will be mutually beneficial. Not only can I bring ADB’s challenges to the board table, I’ll also be able to bring back the board’s recommendations to ADB,” states David.
David will remain on the Service Corporation board until June, 2014 when he will resign his position to fulfill his role on the MBA’s board of directors.
Brad Scott, chairman of the Adams Dairy Bank board of directors says, “One would be hard pressed to find someone more in tune than David with both the needs of Missouri banks and the products and services that draw customers to a particular bank. It shows in the way he leads Adams Dairy Bank and its customer loyalty. I know he’ll bring a helpful perspective to the two boards.”
