carGo Technologies LLC
Cape Girardeau-based carGo Technologies LLC launched its ride-hailing and delivery services April 8 in the Springfield market. Currently, 20 employees work for the company in town at 431 S. Jefferson Ave., Ste. 116A, in Wilhoit Plaza. Similar to Uber and Lyft, carGo provides rides for customers through an app. “We have customer service here in Springfield that’s live and watching every aspect of the delivery through the app,” said Dave Coble, carGo’s southwest Missouri president, declining to disclose the company’s investment to open in the market. CarGo also delivers food, alcohol and small packages through agreements with other companies in those spaces. More than 50 eateries, including Ocean Zen and Nicola’s, are the first signed on. CarGo is on a three-year lease for an undisclosed rate with Wilhoit Plaza LP. The company launched in Cape Girardeau in 2017 and has since expanded to Poplar Bluff and southern Illinois.

Stockmens Bank
First Home Bank officially changed its name to Stockmens Bank on April 1 as the result of an acquisition in 2017. First Bancshares Inc. (OTCQB: FBSI) purchased Colorado Springs-based Stockmens Bank in an all-stock transaction, with First Home Bank merging into Stockmens in the deal. Stockmens Bank CEO Rob Alexander became the largest shareholder of the combined company and took on the top role at First Bancshares, said Tyrell Molleck, vice president in Springfield. First Bancshares’ headquarters has moved to Colorado Springs from Mountain Grove. Eight Missouri branches are operated by First Bancshares, including those in Springfield, Marshfield and Sparta. Molleck said First Bancshares has roughly $350 million in assets, up from $250 million prior to the Stockmens Bank deal. As of June 30, 2018, Stockmens Bank held $49.5 million in deposits in the Springfield metropolitan statistical area, according to Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. data.
