SPRINGFIELD – The Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) recently announced the appointment of Leon J. Holschbach, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Midland States Bank, to the Bankers Advisory Board (BAB). The BAB serves to advise and assist the CSBS Board of Directors from the perspective and experience of state-chartered banking institutions in pursuit of the organization’s goals and to provide industry input on appropriate areas of CSBS activities. Holschbach’s two-year term expires in May of 2018. The BAB’s next meeting will take place on September 12th in Forth Worth, Texas.

“I commend the CSBS for appointing Leon to the Bankers Advisory Board,” said Bryan A. Schneider, IDFPR Secretary. “As Vice Chairman and CEO to Illinois’ largest state-chartered bank, Leon brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the appointment and will, undoubtedly, provide invaluable insight into how federal policies, legislation and regulation impact state-chartered banks.”
