The Board of Directors of Chelsea State Bank recently announced the promotion of David Schaible to President and Jessica Stubbs to Chief Financial Officer of the Bank.

“It brings me great pleasure to announce these promotions,” stated Chelsea State Bank CEO John Mann. “As a third-generation Schaible, Dave has a rich historical link to our Bank and is a consummate banker. Jessica has been with us for seven years now and has demonstrated excellent leadership and financial management skills.”

Dave Schaible

Schaible began his career at Chelsea State Bank in 1985 and worked his way through the ranks including Security Officer, Personal Loan Officer, Investment Officer, and Head of Retail Banking. He was elected to the Board of Directors in 2005 and attained his most recent position of Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for the Bank in 2011.

A lifelong resident of Chelsea, Schaible graduated from Chelsea High School and obtained his bachelor’s degree in Economics from Albion College. He is a longstanding member and past president of Chelsea Kiwanis Club and serves on their Board of Directors. He also serves on the Board of Chelsea Community Foundation.

“Dave’s father, Paul Schaible, Jr. was President before me, and hired me in 1988 and was Chairman of our Board until 2005, explained Mann. “Dave’s grandfather, Paul Schaible, Sr. was the organizer of the Farmers and Merchants Bank in 1908, and it is said that he traveled the countryside in horse and buggy to secure investors for the Bank. He became the first President of Chelsea State Bank after the two Chelsea banks merged in 1934.

“Family history aside, Dave has done an outstanding job for Chelsea State Bank throughout his long career,” continued Mann. “As his responsibilities increased, so did his performance. He knows the business of banking, including the importance of customer service and looking out for the community. I look forward to working with him in the future.”
