Brosnahan joins board of First Community Bancshares

June 7, 2007

First Community Bancshares, which owns FCB Bank in De Soto, has added veteran banker Michael Brosnahan to its board of directors.

Brosnahan, who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the organization, retired in 1999 after 27 years of experience in financial services. He most recently was executive vice president and regional consumer executive for Bank of America in Kansas City and Iowa.

"We are truly grateful that Michael has agreed to serve on our board," said President and Chief Operating Officer Greg Bynum. "His expertise in the industry will be vital as we continue to grow and expand our organization."

Brosnahan began his banking career in 1972 as a commercial loan officer. He moved to Kansas City in 1976 when he became vice president of Mercantile Bank & Trust in Kansas City. He joined Centerre Bank of Kansas City in 1979, and held various leadership positions in the organization. When Boatman's acquired Centerre in 1988, Brosnahan became executive vice president of its Community Banking Division.

Twice during his career, Brosnahan was honored by the U.S. Small Business Administration as Banker Advocate of the Year for the Kansas City district.

He is past president of the Rockhurst University Alumni Association, and a former member of the Rockhurst Board of Regents and the Dean's Advisory Board.

Brosnahan is currently a member of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph Finance Committee. He also serves as a member of the Good Hammer Advisory Committee, a group that works to combat predatory home improvement contractors from preying on elderly and low-income homeowners.
