First Security Announces Mills Promotion and Hire of Gerber

The First Security Bank & Trust Board of Directors and President/CEO Kurt Herbrechtsmeyer are pleased to announce the promotion of Lora Mills as well as the hire of Kim Gerber.

Lora Mills, who joined First Security as a Trust Administrative Specialist in February of this year, has been promoted to Trust Operations Administrator.

Mills relocated to Charles City from Cedar Falls and joined First Security with 18 years of experience in banking, primarily assisting in the Trust and Wealth Management areas. One of Mills’ areas of expertise includes providing a streamlined approach for client services.

“Lora has an excellent skill set. She excels at problem solving and project management,” said Julie Versluis, Vice President/Trust Officer. “Her high regard for details and accuracy is essential to our business and client relationships. We enjoy having her as part of the team and she has proven herself deserving of this promotion.”

When not at work, Mills keeps very busy with her son’s activities.

Kim Gerber has joined First Security as a Trust Administrative Assistant. She most recently worked for several years at Shankland Insurance in Charles City and, before that, she worked for the Charles City Community Revitalization and Chamber.

“Kim is an excellent addition to our team,” continued Versluis. “She is very professional and has a warm personality. Her strong technology and organizational skills are an asset to our team!”

Gerber moved to Charles City as a child and has been a member of the community ever since. She is an active volunteer as a member of the Design Committee for Community Revitalization as well as the Charles City WhiteWater Committee, which the Charles City Chamber Tourism Coordinator leads. She participates as a volunteer at the annual WhiteWater challenge event, and enjoys meeting the participants that visit Charles City from all over the country.

Outside of work and volunteering, Gerber enjoys taking photos, reading books, doing creative projects, and spending time with her family.

First Security Bank & Trust has locations across North Central Iowa and headquarters in Charles City.
