With hire, Mid-Missouri Bank changes title of top tech job

Posted online

Mid-Missouri Bank hired a financial industry veteran as its new chief information officer.

John Darrow started as the company’s information technology leader on Aug. 12, according to a news release issued this month.

He succeeds nine-year Chief Technology Officer Ron Green, who retired, said Mid-Missouri Bank spokesman Andrew Moore. The company’s leadership decided the CIO title better reflects the duties of the position than CTO, Moore added.

As CIO, Darrow is in charge of Mid-Missouri Bank’s IT infrastructure and networks, as well as the development of financial technology software for customers and employees, according to the release.

“Technology and security are pillars of modern banking,” said Brian Riedy, the bank’s president, in the release. “John’s expertise in the ever-evolving financial services information systems field will help us be sure we’re staying on the leading edge for our customers.”

Darrow comes to Mid-Missouri Bank with 18 years of financial experience, most recently serving as vice president of information technology for Volt Credit Union the past three years.

The new hire and title change comes as Mid-Missouri Bank is developing a $4 million new headquarters and branch in front of its current operations center on Independence Street. DeWitt & Associates Inc. is expected to complete the 21,000-square-foot project in fall 2020.
