Lohman appointed to board

FULTON, Ill. — Brett M. Lohman was recently appointed to the board of directors of Central Banc, Inc., the holding company of Central Bank Illinois headquartered in Geneseo, Ill.

The company has locations in the communities of Andover, Fulton and Princeton, with a loan production office in Prophetstown, Ill.

Central Banc Chairman of the Board Todd Sieben stated, “I have had the honor of working with Brett on numerous boards, committees and community events over the years. The experience and knowledge he brings to our board of directors is welcomed and will benefit our shareholders.”

Lohman is an owner of Lohman Companies Insurance and is the vice president of the company’s commercial insurance division. Upon graduation from St. Ambrose University, he began his career with Lohman Companies, a third-generation family business.

Lohman is the vice president of Lee’s Lanes in Geneseo, vice president of the Geneseo Community Development Corp., chairman of the Hammond Henry Hospital Estate Planning Committee and a member of the Geneseo and Illinois Quad City Chambers of Commerce. His professional affiliations include membership in the Independent Insurance Association of America and Illinois.

Actively involved in the community, Lohman served two terms as the Geneseo Chamber of Commerce president and was honored as its Business Person of the Year in 1999. For 25 years, he served on the City of Geneseo Water & Sewer Board, and as chairman of the board for a portion of those years.

Through his commitment to non-profit organizations, Lohman was a founding member and past President of the GIFT Foundation and served as chairman of the Blackhawk College Foundation. Lohman’s passion for flying has allowed him to serve as a past president and board member for Gen-Air Airport in Geneseo.

First opening its doors in 1907, Central Bank Illinois has grown to over $447 million in assets. As a community bank, Central Bank focuses and supports the growth of local business and agriculture, and as a result the bank’s loan portfolio exceeds $248 million.
