Schreiner named market president of Viking Bank

Viking Bank, N.A., chartered and headquartered in Alexandria, has announced the addition of Mike Schreiner as market president of the Viking Bank in Ashby.

Schreiner is an Alexandria native with more than 16 years of banking and lending experience, having spent the last 12 years at Midwest Bank in Dalton where he was a loan officer and branch president.


Schreiner, his wife, Jolene, and their 18-year-old son have a home between Alexandria and Ashby.

Viking Bank CEO Doug Houska said, “We are extremely excited to have Mike join us in our Ashby location. Mike’s experience, knowledge and commitment to community banking will help us to better serve families in Ashby and the surrounding area.”

ASB raises $13,000 for United Way

American Solutions for Business in Glenwood raised $13,841 from its United Way fundraiser this year. The non-restricted funds raised will be directed towards future United Way projects and efforts.


“We had 88 employees donate through our online proprietary platform, ACES,” explained ASB Vice President of Technology, Mike Pfeiffer. “With a 125% increase in participation from last year, it’s no wonder we far exceeded our $10,000 goal.”

ASB has had a representative on the United Way of Pope and Douglas Counties’ board and various committees for years, continuing to uphold the involvement that American takes pride in. Pfeiffer just began the first year of his three-year term.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
