April 14, 2021
Fresh out of college, Mike Leininger went to work in Hastings, Neb. Little did he know at the time, he would be offered an opportunity that would last 34 years.
On Friday, April 9, Platte Valley Bank and its Sidney customers wished Leininger a happy retirement, completing 34 ½ years in Sidney.
“One of the great things about Mike is he is a community banker,” said Hod Kosman, Director/Chairman andCEO/President of Platte Valley Bank Friday.
Kosman presented Leininger and his wife Rita a retirement gift, commending them on the length of service to the bank and to the Sidney community.
Kosman said when presenting the award the Leininger fit the motto of the bank; he is a community banker.
"It has definitely been a privilege," Leininger said. "The bank is in very good hands."
Leininger was offered a position with the Sidney bank while working in Hastings. Moving to Sidney, he had the opportunity to learn many skills.
“In a small branch, you have the opportunity to wear many hats,” he said.
The new community bank president is Ted Sintler.
