On June 1, Paul Mackin began a three-year term as a director-at-large on ICBM’s board of directors. Mackin is president and CEO of Think Mutual Bank, a position he has held since 2008, and brings 35 years of experience to ICBM’s board.
“As the leader of a $1.6 billion community banking organization, Paul brings great insight on ways ICBM can serve larger community banks in the state,” said ICBM President & CEO Jim Amundson. “Paul had been back less than a month at our June board meeting and he is already making positive contributions. We’re all thankful he is willing to help lead ICBM as a board member once again.”
Mackin, who has served as a director-at-large before, is one of two at-large directors. ICBM’s bylaws allow for up to three directors of this type. Jenn Spartz of Woodland Bank, Grand Rapids, served as a director-at-large until this year; she was elected in January to represent ICBM district 9.
Earlier this year, four other Minnesota community bankers began their terms on ICBM’s board.
Bill LaVigne, Chief Operating Officer at The Bank of Elk River, was elected to represent District 5. He took the seat vacated by Anita Drentlaw, President/CFO of New Market Bank, Elko New Market, when she was elected to the executive committee at Convention in August 2018.
Tiffany Baer Paine, President/CEO of Security Bank USA, Bemidji, was elected in District 10. Baer Paine previously served a 3-year term on the ICBM board as an at-large director.
Peter Nelson, President of Glenwood State Bank, and Erik Myhre, CEO of Community First Bank, were re-elected to represent district 7 and district 8, respectively.
“Serving on the ICBM board is a valuable and important way that community bankers further the mission of this association and promote the future success of our industry,” Amundson said. “Thank you to all our board members for your service to our industry.”
