Midwest BankCentre hires treasury management executive

St. Louis-based Midwest BankCentre hired Stephanie Makalous as senior vice president of treasury management services.

She started her career at First Business Bank in Kansas City, and was most recently managing director of Kansas City treasury services at Leawood, Kan.-based CrossFirst Bank. 

Makalous’ hire came after Midwest BankCentre opened its first business production office in Kansas City last October.
