PSB Holdings appoints tech executive to board

Wausau, Wis.-based PSB Holdings, Inc., named George Fahr to its board of directors.

Fahr replaces Peter Knitt, who retired from the board effective Dec. 31. Fahr is majority shareholder and president of Digicorp, a Milwaukee-based IT, computer, telephony and video solutions provider.  

Fahr joined Digicorp in 1996, and is credited with helping to transform the then-small telephone system reseller into a larger provider of IT engineering services and products along with telecommunications solutions. 

“George’s experience in information technology strategy, implementation, and cybersecurity risks is a valuable addition to our governance and strategy,” said Scott Cattanach, president and CEO of PSB Holdings and its $1.4 billion subsidiary Peoples State Bank. “Digicorp provides a wide range of IT solutions for small- to midsize businesses, which fits nicely with Peoples’ focus on the same size customers.”

Knitt served on the PSB Holdings board from early 2018-2023. A longtime Peoples employee, he served as president and CEO of the bank from 2006 until his retirement in December 2017.
