As NMSBank celebrates 40 years of providing excellent service, the election of its President to the National Banker’s Association Board will be one of monumental importance.
This past month, NMSBank President Erbert Johnson was elected to the Board of the National Bankers Association (NBA).
The NBA was founded in 1927, to serve as an advocate for the nation’s minority and women owned banks on legislative and regulatory matters concerning and affecting its members and the communities they serve. Johnson says,
“ I look forward to my service on the Board of the NBA. It is well documented, the critical role that community banks play in sustaining economic activity in this country. As a board member of a leading community banking organization,
I will use that position to continue to advance the mission of NMSBank and community banks around the nation.”
Coinciding with Johnson’s objective, the NBA seeks to maintain an information flow to its member banks relating to the sound and profitable operation of their banks. NMSBank, itself is seen as a pillar within its community, designed to serve and positively impact its surrounding neighborhoods.
Johnson has been President of NMSBank for nearly three years. During that time,
NMSBank has been ranked as one of the Nation’s Top 25 Largest Black (Banking) Businesses, according to Black Enterprise Magazine.
Johnson has tapped into over $3 million worth of grants from the U.S. Department of Treasury to serve the Milwaukee community.
Since Johnson’s appointment as President of NMSBank, the bank has also increased its community outreach efforts through funding local events and organizations in the greater Milwaukee area.
Johnson believes that service on this national board will only increase opportunities for funding and advocacy for NMSBank’s targeted market.
NMSBank is a certified CDFI and state-chartered bank with nearly $100 million in assets.
Founded in 1971, it is Wisconsin’s oldest minority-owned bank.
