Salem, Ind.-based Mid-Southern Bancorp, Inc., increased its board of directors from seven members to eight and appointed James King III to serve a two-year term.
King, who also appointed to the board of the $202 million Mid-Southern Savings Bank, joined Mid-Southern as executive vice president and senior loan officer in October 2021. He began his career in 1994 at King Southern Bank, Chaplin, Ky., eventually advancing to president and CEO of the bank and its holding company, King Bancorp, Inc. The bank was acquired by a Kentucky-based regional financial institution in 2019.
“We are pleased to welcome [King] and know he will be a valuable addition to our boards of directors,” said Mid-Southern Bancorp Board Chair Dana Dunbar. [King’s] knowledge and extensive background in community banking will help further our mission in the markets we serve.”
