KCSB shareholders elect board members

Kalamazoo County State Bank (KCSB) shareholders elected Jill A. Angell and Blake A. Krum to the Board of Directors and also elected David T. Krum as director emeritus.

“It is a great pleasure to welcome both Jill and Blake to the Board of Directors,” said KCSB President and CEO Scott Hines. They “add to the long family history of Angells and Krums at KCSB. Both have excellent backgrounds and will add new perspectives, as well as continue the goal of keeping KCSB a strong independent community bank for the communities we serve.”

Angell is the daughter of current chairman of the board Chairman Thorne Angell. She is a graduate of Western Michigan University with a bachelor’s in psychology and social work. Angell has held several jobs in the social services sector. Angell is currently the member services director at Sherman Lake YMCA Outdoor Center. “Jill’s ties to the Kalamazoo and Schoolcraft communities run deep and will be an asset to KCSB as she begins serving on the board,” Hines said.

Blake A. Krum also follows a long line of family members who have served on the KCSB board. Krum has a bachelor’s degree in management and finance from Olivet College and a master’s in business administration-management from Western Michigan University. Krum is currently employed with Raymond James – Williams Capital Management/Hemenway Wealth Management as a financial advisor. “Blake’s knowledge of finances and investments fits well with the operations of the Bank,” Hines said. “We look forward to tapping his financial skills to enhance the overall value of the Bank.” Krum, like Angell, has roots in Kalamazoo and Schoolcraft.

David T. Krum was elected as director emeritus at the bank’s annual meeting. David had served as a director of the bank since 1976. “David’s knowledge of the bank and his heartfelt passion to make KCSB a strong independent community bank will be missed,” Hines said. “David has served the bank with pride for the past 47 years and we wish him the best as he steps back from his leadership role within the bank.”
