WASHINGTON — The Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) has announced that local community banker Greg R. Raymo, Chief Executive Officer of First State Bank Southwest, Worthington, has been named to serve on ICBA’s Ag/Rural America Committee. ICBA is the nation’s voice for community banks.

“I am honored to represent our industry and share my experiences as a community banker and civic leader to help ICBA communicate the positive story of community banking,” Raymo said. “Community banks are trusted relationship-based lenders, invested in the success of their customers and the economic prosperity of their community.”

In addition to helping shape and advocate ICBA’s national policy positions and programs, Raymo's duties include engaging in grassroots activities in Minnesota to promote pro-community bank policies and serving as a liaison between community banks and ICBA staff and leadership in Washington.

“Greg is a dedicated community banker who is highly respected in his community and by his industry peers,” said ICBA Chairman Robert M. Fisher, president and CEO of Tioga State Bank in Spencer, New York. “We are delighted Greg has accepted this appointment and generously volunteered his time and professional talents in pursuit of creating an environment where community banks, and the communities they serve, continue to flourish.”

The Independent Community Bankers of America creates and promotes an environment where community banks are strong. ICBA is dedicated exclusively to representing the interests of the community banking industry and its membership through effective advocacy, best-in-class education, and high-quality products and services.
