Schmid is already in the process of forming a new community bank board. His focus is on fostering collaboration and creating a network of resources among young professionals. Schmid’s motivation behind the formation of a young professionals’ board comes from his own experiences. “Coming up, I derived great value from having a trusted network of professionals to rely upon for support and to call on when I had a client with a need. I want to give other young professionals a space to grow and develop alongside peers from a wide array of careers and industries,” commented Schmid.
Schmid earned his MBA at Webster University in St. Louis and earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Businesses. He serves on boards of Hope Happens and Canterbury Enterprises and volunteers his time each year to serve high school students at the DECA District Competition.
