EFFINGHAM, ILLINOIS – December 3, 2014 – Midland States Bank is pleased to announce the expansion of commercial lending services in the Bloomington and Decatur markets and the appointment of Kurt Rudsinski as Market President. Midland opened Wealth Management offices in both cities earlier this year.

Jeffrey Mefford, Senior Vice President of Community Banking at Midland, commented, “The addition of lending services shows our confidence in the region’s potential and is a natural progression of our expansion within the Bloomington and Decatur markets. We are fortunate to have a person of Kurt’s experience and knowledge of these communities join the Midland team.”

In his new role, Rudsinski’s primary responsibility will be in providing leadership focused on cultivating business development and commercial relationships in both markets.

“Midland’s financial strength and lending capacity allows me to partner with local businesses and provide financing options, as well as help them support their growth with cash management programs and merchant services,” Rudsinski said. “Much of my career has been spent in financial services in Bloomington and Decatur, and I am looking forward to continuing to help area businesses achieve their financial goals.”

Rudsinski began his financial career in 1992 and has held leadership positions at two banks and a manufacturing company in the Bloomington/Decatur area. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Illinois State University in Normal and is also a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
