Tim Schneider, CEO and co-founder of Investors Community Bank in Manitowoc, is the new co-chair of the New North Board of Directors, replacing Bill Bohn from Associated Bank. Bohn will continue to serve on the board.
A member of the New North board since its inception and its executive committee for the past five years, Schneider will work with co-chair Vicki Updike to provide oversight and direction to New North Executive Director Barb LaMue in meeting planned objectives and goals.
Schneider has more than 30 years of banking experience in agricultural and commercial banking, the past 23 with Investors Community Bank as one of its four co-founders. Headquartered in Manitowoc, Investors Community Bank provides financial solutions for ag and business banking customers at its locations throughout the New North region.
“I have been involved with economic development, both at the local level and regional level, for a number of years,” Schneider said. “I know that Barb and Vicki will make my transition smooth, given their years of leadership with the organization’s activities. Moving forward, as the New North evolves with our regional economy, we will continue to respond to the needs of area businesses and maintain a strong collaborative role in further advancement of our market.”
