Evans said Guzzo's primary responsibility will be to provide leadership for Merchants Bank's Winona locations, along with meaningful community engagement for the Winona area. He will have supervisory responsibility for the team of Market Presidents in Onalaska and Eau Claire, and Minnesota locations in La Crescent, Caledonia, Spring Grove, St. Charles and Rushford and Lanesboro.

Since the retirement of former President & CEO Rod Nelson in January, Evans has been serving as the Winona Bank President, as well as overseeing the banking operations for all of Merchants Bank's 21 locations, in addition to his role as Merchants Financial Group President and CEO.
With the addition of Guzzo, Merchants will have three regional presidents reporting to Evans - Guzzo for Winona/South, Dan Massett for the Central Region and Lawrence Stovern for the Twin Cities Region. Evans points out that all are supported by local presidents who have decision making responsibilities in their markets......
