In this role, Freiert will lead the strategic growth of FNBC’s portfolio in Independence County, including small business and commercial lending, treasury management services expansion and deposit growth.

“One of the things that drew me to FNBC was its reputation as a community bank,” says Freiert. “I look forward to continuing my career with a community bank that values the relationships in the community it serves. When I started in banking over 18 years ago, making a difference for the people of my hometown was my focus. I’m excited to get back to the type of community banking that best serves my customers and my community.”
