With Merger Complete, Mid-States' Minnesota Advisory Group No Longer Needed
WARRENVILLE, Ill. - It was a long merger process, but with the deal now done Mid-States said its Minnesota Advisory Group is no longer needed. Mid-States has dissolved the group, which was started to help facilitate communications surrounding the Mid-States/Minnesota Corporate merger that started back in 2002. Mid-States said it will still maintain a strong presence in Minnesota. Mid-States decided to keep Minnesota Corporate's headquarters building in Eagan where former Minnesota Corporate President/CEO Lew Lambert serves as President, Eagan Operations. Mid-States said it will hold a town-hall style meeting with Minnesota CUs at the Minnesota Credit Union Network Annual Meeting in Spring 2005. Mid-States Corporate CEO Dave Preter is pleased the book can be closed on the merger, and the corporate now looks to build its brand by investing in infrastructure, personnel and marketing to position the corporate as "the premium-brand corporate in the Midwest."
