In making the announcement, James Kerndt, CEO of Kerndt Brothers Bank, stated, “Evan Kooiker brings significant experience in managing community banks, frankly Kooiker is a perfect fit as we strive to be a material benefit to the communities we serve and to provide a safe place for your funds.” Kooiker commented, “I am looking forward to being part of a community bank and getting to know the northeast Iowans Kerndt Brothers Bank has served for the past 164 years. Organizations like this are uniquely positioned to know their customers in a way large national banks just can’t. Since joining the bank I’ve had the pleasure of meeting folks from Waukon, Lansing and Harpers Ferry while enjoying the river.”
