Special to The Hays Daily News
Sunflower Bank has promoted Mike Briney, Hays, to president of the Hays region. He will be responsible for developing commercial relationships in the markets of Hays, Victoria, Russell, Great Bend, Ellinwood and Osborne. Briney's previous position was commercial and agricultural lender.
Briney, a seven-year Sunflower Bank veteran, brings 25 years of financial experience in central and western Kansas, predominantly with agricultural and small businesses, but also with manufacturing, construction and oil industries.
"Mike is a natural fit for this region of the bank," said Sandy Jacobs, Sunflower executive vice president. "His background of accounting, mixed with his charisma, knowledge and experience provides the perfect combination for overseeing our commercial relationships. It also doesn't hurt that he's a farmer from western Kansas."
Throughout his career, Briney has been active in several community organizations, including Hays Ambassadors, Heartland Catbackers, Hays Kiwanis, Hays Area Chamber of Commerce and the Ellis County Extension Council. He attended Kansas State University, earning his bachelor's degree in business administration, majoring in accounting. Briney is married with two children, one grandchild and resides in Hays.
