Darrell Jackson is to remain co-president of personal financial services in Illinois. Mallicoat and Jackson both report to Blowers.

The company also announced it had promoted Carson Yeager to Midwestern states president, as which he is to manage all offices outside of Illinois and report to Blowers. He was managing director of the eastern DuPage County area and also head of the company's private banking department.
