Legacy Bank and Trust Co. has created two new top roles.
Greg Wagner was hired as the bank's new senior vice president and chief retail banking officer, and Bart Ellison was named rural market president, according to news releases issued late last week by the company.
Wagner's LinkedIn profile indicates he started in April after exiting his position of retail banking executive for Gateway First Bank in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
"His experience and knowledge on the retail banking front will help us continue to build a top-tier community banking deposit platform," Legacy Bank President Brett Magers said in a news release.
In the role, Wagner is responsible for leading, managing and growing Legacy Bank's retail presence in all of the company's markets. Katrina Sweaney, vice president of human resources for Legacy Bank, said via email that retail banking represents the deposit production and branch operations side of the company.
Ellison, who has more than 21 years of banking experience, oversees lending in rural areas for Legacy Bank, including branches in Clinton, Mountain Grove and Sparta, according to a separate news release.
“We are very excited to have Bart join our team to lead the lending efforts in our rural markets. Bart has a solid reputation for taking great care of clients and is a great cultural fit for our organization,” said Jeremy Loftin, chief operations officer of Legacy Bank, in the release.
