Bank appoints board member
A bank in the region has appointed a manufacturing executive to its board of directors.
Sparta-based ChoiceOne Bank and its parent company, ChoiceOne Financial Services, appointed Bradley McGinnis to the boards for both entities at their Oct. 24 meetings.
McGinnis is the owner and president of Alpine Township-based Megawall, a manufacturer and distributor of display systems.
He replaces outgoing board member Dennis Nelson, who was term-limited.
McGinnis will also serve as a member of several ChoiceOne committees: the audit/compliance/CRA committee; personnel and benefits committee; asset/liability and risk committee; and IT committee.
“Brad’s business acumen, coupled with his expert entrepreneurial and leadership skills make him an ideal addition to our boards,” said Kelly Potes, president and CEO of ChoiceOne Financial Services and ChoiceOne Bank.
“As we grow our community bank franchise into West Michigan, it’s important to remember our roots. Brad lives and works in the markets the bank serves.”
With roots dating back to 1898, ChoiceOne Bank — a subsidiary of ChoiceOne Financial Services (OTC Pink: COFS) — has offices in Kent, Ottawa, Muskegon and Newaygo counties.
The bank had about $650 million in assets as of Oct. 24, 2018.
