Sieck also served nine years on The University of Northern Iowa’s Real Estate Advisory Council, including three years as its Chair. Dwayne grew up in Maynard, IA, a small farming community in northeast Iowa. After graduating from UNI, he married to his college sweetheart, Angie (Nicholson) who grew up in Muscatine. He and Angie have 3 children: Lauren (18), Kristen (16), and Nathan (14).
Dan Stein, Chairman of the Board of Central Bancshares, said, “Dwayne is uniquely qualified to succeed Greg, who has been our CEO since 2010. The opportunity for them to work together over the coming year will ensure a smooth transition for the leadership of our company.” Dwayne Sieck, President of CBI Bank & Trust, said, “It is an honor to serve the communities that
CBI has been serving for generations. I am looking forward to working with such a talented and experienced team at CBI, who put our clients first. The team clearly understands and knows that community banking, when done well, acts as the lifeblood that preserves and strengthens the health of businesses and families in our communities. Angie and I are blessed for the opportunity to return to the Pearl of the Mississippi, Muscatine, and Iowa where our roots were established.”
