Mark MoorsFirst National Bank of Northfield announced today the addition of Mark Moors to its Board of Directors. Moors, a Northfield resident, most recently held the position of president/owner of Moors Capital Management.

He brings with him a valuable balance of knowledge, understanding the complexity of the banking arena as well as the unique service opportunities that arise in community banking. He knows Northfield and he knows the financial industry as a whole. We’re confident he will help First National grow in a way that will benefit the business and community.”

In speaking about his new position, Moors said, “I’m thrilled to be able to serve in this capacity. First National has a lot to offer and I look forward to providing strategic insights that will grow the bank’s portfolio, while bringing the highest level of products and services to customers.”

As a member of the board, Moors will serve alongside Northfield residents and business professionals Rich Falck, Brett Reese, Mike Remes and Jennifer Sawyer, in addition to First National CEO Dave Shumway and President Tim Viere. Moors’ appointment comes after Carol Cowles announced her retirement in October.
