Happy Retirement, Al!
December 30, 2022
Iowa State Bank announces that Al Gross, CEO, will be ending his service at the bank when he retires at year end. Al first joined ISB as President in 2018. His career has spanned over 40 years in the bank industry, primarily in the areas of lending, private banking, and business development.
Al has been instrumental in the continued growth and success of the bank. He has guided us through many challenges, including a pandemic, and we are grateful for his leadership.
Iowa State Bank is pleased to announce that Al will continue to serve on the Board of Directors for the bank.
Al Gross ads:
“There will always be challenges to face, but I am confident that Iowa State Bank is well-positioned to weather economic uncertainties and any other trials thrown at us. With new leadership from Lauren Burgeson, the future looks extremely bright. Her commitment to the community, the bank, and to each one of you is unwavering and will remain so for many years to come.”
Lauren Burgeson will assume the role of President & CEO at the beginning of January 2023.
As Al plans for retirement, he is considering how he will spend his newly gained leisure time. The short list includes more time with his wife, Mary and their kids and grandkids, traveling, and continuing his community involvement and board positions.
The impact Al has had on the organization as a whole will be lasting and we wish him all the very best in this next chapter of life.
Al, Thank you for your dedication in serving our customers, living out ISB’s core values, and making the bank such a special place to be part of. You will be dearly missed!
