MANHATTAN, Kan. - Landmark Bancorp, Inc., a Delaware-incorporated bank holding company, announced the appointment of Abigail Wendel as its president and chief executive officer, effective March 29, 2024. Wendel will also join the boards of directors of both the company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Landmark National Bank.

Wendel succeeds Michael Scheopner, who will transition to a non-executive role until his retirement at the end of the year. With a robust background in banking, Wendel previously held the position of president of the consumer division at UMB Bank, N.A., where she managed a team of more than 800 associates.

Her responsibilities included overseeing retail, mortgage, and private banking, with a focus on customer acquisition and experience. Prior to UMB, she served at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City for over a decade. Wendel's community involvement extends to various charitable and civic initiatives in the Kansas City area.

In his parting statement, Scheopner expressed pride in the growth and diversity of the banking services developed under his tenure, which have been tailored to meet specific client needs. He anticipates continued success and expansion for Landmark under Wendel's guidance.

The selection process for Wendel's appointment was led by Patrick Alexander, chair of the board of directors, with assistance from a special committee of independent directors and a nationally recognized executive recruiting firm.

Alexander praised Scheopner's strategic leadership and expressed enthusiasm for Wendel's future contributions to the bank's growth and customer relationships.

Wendel will operate primarily from the Kansas City metro area and plans to make regular visits to Landmark National Bank locations across Kansas. Landmark Bancorp trades on the NASDAQ Global Market under the ticker "LARK" and operates Landmark National Bank, which is headquartered in Manhattan, Kansas, and serves 24 communities through 31 banking locations in the state.

This leadership transition is based on a press release statement from Landmark Bancorp, Inc.
