Success Story

One success story we love to share is about an IB favorite, Luke Rech. Luke grew up on a cow/calf ranch in western South Dakota. In 2011, his family moved to Big Timber, MT where he proudly became a Sweet Grass Co. High Herder! After graduation, he moved to Havre to attend Montana State University-Northern in the fall of 2016 and redshirt for the Lights football team. Luke wanted to pursue work during his college career that related to his interest in the cattle industry, so he applied at Independence Bank and started as a part-time teller in the fall of 2017. In January of 2018, he transitioned to the lending side of the Bank as a Credit Analyst. Luke continued to work for IB throughout his college career and graduated in the spring of 2020 with bachelor degrees in Agriculture Operations Technology and Business Administration. In June of 2020, Luke became a full-time Loan Officer with the Bank.

Luke believes Independence Bank has been a blessing in his life. He truly appreciated the opportunity to work part-time while attending college and to apply what he was learning to real world situations. Luke credits the Ag team at IB for giving him a solid foundation and a fundamental understanding of the banking industry and the financial world, especially as it relates to his favorite industry…Agriculture. His favorite part of the job is working with customers, especially when it involves getting a chance to work side-by-side with them on their farm or ranch.

Luke is excited about the future and looks forward to welcoming other young bankers to Independence Bank!

Success Story

Kay Mayer

One of our biggest success stories is Kay Mayer. Kay started in 1978, only a few years after the Bank was founded. She began her career as Executive Secretary/Loan Assistant and progressed through the positions of Assistant Cashier, Assistant Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer, Vice President of Human Resources. Kay also served as a member of our Board of Directors and the Corporate Secretary of both the Bank and our Holding Company, MSI from April 2004 to April 2021. After retiring in April of 2021, Kay continues to be active with IB managing Shareholder Relations for MSI. An amazing resource for our employees, she is always keeping an eye on our future, while having the greatest understanding of how far we have come in our 48 years. Kay has witnessed our growth firsthand from a single community bank to one that serves 12 counties with six branches and two LPO/DPOs in Northeastern and Central Montana.

Not only does Kay have more than 40 years of experience at the Bank, but she's also one of the company's biggest fans. And if Kay has anything to say about it... the remarkable growth and success of Independence Bank will only continue as we add the next generation of community bankers to our team!
