December 29, 2009 — Roger L. Mosier was elected as the new President/CEO of RCB Bank, the Board of Directors announced Tuesday morning. He will replace interim President and CEO Ted McGuire.
“Roger is a highly qualified individual and RCB is very fortunate to have this talented gentleman at the helm” said McGuire.
Mosier has been with RCB for 17 years. He and wife Vicki and their three children live in Claremore.
Mosier first moved to Claremore with his parents in 1972 and attended Westside Elementary. He played football at Claremore High under coach Larry Coker and graduated from CHS in 1979.
Following high school, Mosier went to Oklahoma State University. He was a walk-on in football but quit when he saw it affecting his academics.
His father, Dr. Richard Mosier, served on the Board of RCB, and he knew several bankers from the community. Older brother Rick worked at Federal Land Bank. It was only natural to follow the inclination toward banking and finance. He graduated with a degree in agricultural economics.
Following college, Mosier worked at the Farmers’ Home Administration and then at First Bank Claremore as a teller.
“Everybody should have to be a teller. It’s where everything happens at a bank,” said Mosier.
Mosier has served as Senior Executive Vice President, Chief Lending Officer of RCB since 2007. He will assume the bank’s top leadership position on Jan. 1, 2010.
“I am very excited for this opportunity,” said Mosier. “RCB is poised and ready for growth.”
Mosier will deal with changes in regulations regarding lending practices and is ready to assume the challenge of leading the bank through uncertain economic times. The bank will continue its strong involvement in community affairs.
“We have to be involved in those communities to understand and have a better feel for the communities’ needs,” said Mosier. “It’s part of being a community bank rather than a regional bank.”
Mosier said RCB is in the top 10 of Oklahoma banks by asset size. The bank recently received a 5-star rating by Bankrate.com based on soundness and security.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this company and to serve our Oklahoma communities,” said Mosier.
