Legacy Bank promotes 10-year leader to president

Posted online

Legacy Bank & Trust Co. promoted its chief lending officer to one of its top executive positions.

Brett Magers, a 10-year leader at the company, took on the president role last month, according to a news release. John Everett, a staff member since 2004 who previously served as president and CEO, is maintaining his chief executive job. Legacy Bank’s website also lists Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operations Officer Brandon Taylor among its executive leadership team with Everett and Magers.

“Brett has played an integral role in our success through his ability to attract and develop customer relationships, as well as building a team of talented associates that share his mindset of constantly driving to be the best," Everett said in the release. "He is ready to take on even more responsibilities and overall management of our growing organization.”

Magers takes on the new role as Legacy Bank is developing its new headquarters at a former Meek’s Lumber Co. lot. The $7.5 million-$8 million project at 3250 E. Sunshine St. is slated for completion in June 2021, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting.

Legacy Bank held $540 million in assets as of Nov. 30, according to the release.

The company ranked No. 19 on SBJ's list this year of the area's largest banks and savings bank, based on $224.3 million in Springfield metropolitan statistical area deposits held as of June 30.
