It is with sincere gratitude for all he has contributed to our organization that Bank Five Nine announces that Mark W. Mohr has chosen to retire from his role as President and CEO in early 2023.
Mark has enjoyed a 40+ year career in community banking and has served as President at three different organizations. During his 15 years at Bank Five Nine, their assets grew by $1 billion, they doubled their branch footprint, and expanded the corporate headquarters. He led the bank through a complete rebrand in 2020 and he is particularly proud of their advancements in support of small businesses, non-profit organizations and low-to-moderate income families.
At Bank Five Nine, their mission is to Make Lives Better, and no one exemplifies these words more than Mark. Throughout his career, he has served on several corporate, civic and non-profit boards, often in leadership roles. Additionally, he has made lives better for the bank’s employees, as demonstrated by the 13 consecutive Top Workplace awards and 6 consecutive Best Banks to Work For awards they have received. For all his efforts, Mark was named the ICBA National Community Banker of the Year in 2015, and a Top Workplace Leader in 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2019.
Bank Five Nine remains committed to being a strong, local and independent community bank. As such, the bank’s Board of Directors has retained a nationally-respected executive search firm, Chartwell Partners, to assist them in finding their next President and CEO.
