Missouri Governor Eric Greitens announces Lee Keith will be appointed Acting Director for the Division of Financial Institutions.

The press release from the Governor’s Office says Keith has a storied career in turning around troubled Missouri banks in towns such as Sullivan, Columbia and Springfield. The Governor says Keith’s work in saving small-town community banks has helped ensure these communities continue creating jobs.

Keith recently finished his final turnaround for Mercantile Bank in Quincy, Illinois.
