Baytree Welcomes New EB Financial Group Chairman

Baytree National Bank & Trust Co. is pleased to announce a recent addition to the Board of Directors of our holding company, EB Financial Group, Inc.

Gary Longman recently was elected as Chairman of the Board. Longman brings extensive experience in bank holdings and board experience. Longman has been an active board member since the company’s inception, and he has been a part of the bank’s Audit Committee as well as a member of the Asset/Liability Committee.

Previously, Longman had worked for KPMG, LLC Chicago as partner in charge of audit practices.

Longman succeeds Willard Bunn III. Bunn had served as chairman since January 2010, when EB Financial first acquired Baytree, helping to propel us as a leader among Lake Forest banks. Bunn will continue to serve as a board member and the chairman of Baytree National Bank & Trust.

We at Baytree look forward to working with Longman and benefiting from his unique background in banking and working with regulators. We welcome his more active role in our organization.
