American Bank & Trust has chosen Don Churchill to fill the market president position.
He has been at the De Smet branch since Aug. 20. He comes here from Chadron, Neb. where he was a vice president.
Churchill grew up on a ranch just south of Valentine, Neb. His folks raised charolais cattle. After high school he attended the University of Nebraska and graduated in 1986. He was an insurance agent and then a loan officer.
Churchill‘s career in the financial field started in 1991. From 2003 to 2008 he was the branch president at First National Bank in Lake Preston.
Churchill and his wife have raised six daughters ages 18 to 30. The youngest is staying in Chadron, Neb., along with his wife so she can finish her senior year. After graduation they will move to the area.
Churchill said the opportunity to come back to a small community and be the market president for American Bank & Trust has been a life goal, he said.
He said the friendliness of the people around here has impressed him the most.
