Southern Bank Welcomes Shon Bauer as Community Bank Manager in Anna IL

(October 27, 2022 Anna, IL) - Southern Bank is happy to announce the addition of Shon Bauer as Community Bank Manager in Anna IL.

Shon, a graduate of the University of Illinois with a BA in Economics, brings 17 years of experience in banking to the position and now returns to the place where he began his career.

“We stay involved in the communities we serve, and who better to guide that than someone who knows the area as a lifelong resident.” says Southern Bank Market President Brian Rivenburgh. “He’s well qualified with a lot of experience; We know he’ll serve the Anna community well.”

Starting at Capaha Bank, Shon gained 5 ½ years of banking experience in his hometown. He was then promoted to the corporate center in Cape Girardeau, MO, for the next 4 ½ years. He spent the next 7 years with Anna-Jonesboro National Bank, serving most recently as a Senior VP.

In 2017 Southern Bank acquired Capaha Bank where Shon first started, which means he now returns to the branch where he got started in banking, 17 years ago.

“Southern Bank was built on being rooted in the community, something I value,” says Shon, who enjoys sports, grilling and being outside in his free time. “Having lived in Anna my whole life and starting my banking career at Capaha, now Southern Bank, it feels like coming home.”
