YOUR BUSINESS AUTHORITY
As president, chief operating officer and chairman of the board of Mid-Missouri Bank, Brian Riedy is in charge of the bank’s strategic direction and vision. Leading through example and communication while empowering team members to success, Riedy says he has a passion for thinking and leading outside of the box.
In his role, he has overseen the new look and growth of the bank. Mid-Missouri Bank has built three new branches in the last five years and is currently working on a new operations/retail center.
In the community, Riedy coaches youth sports teams, adding there “is nothing more rewarding than helping children develop a passion for sports and team building.”

What app gets you through the day? Calendar. If it isn’t in my calendar, I won’t be there.
