Community State Bank has announced Phil Good Jr. as the newest member of its Board of Directors.  

Phil is a 2004 Kewanee High School graduate, received an Associate’s degree from Black Hawk College East Campus and is a 2009 alumnus of Bradley University where he majored in organizational communications and minored in sociology.

The fourth generation of his family to work in the business that his great-grandfather started in 1895, Phil serves as the company’s president and takes a lot of pride in his family’s soon to be 123-year-old business and the people who have helped make Good’s what it is today. 

Good’s features a quarter-of-a-million square feet of home furnishings, a Wine Cellar Restaurant, and a bed and breakfast in Kewanee that serves a 250-mile market.  

Although they have an established reputation and have built many relationships on trust, they remain committed to be being open to what the future may hold and how they can evolve to maintain relevancy and strengthen their business.  Challenging themselves to be adaptive, the Good’s team is always looking for ways to improve the customer experience and add to the value and adventure.

The consumer trust factor and adaptability that Good’s is committed to is part of what attracted Phil to serve on Community State Bank’s Board of Directors.  

“We have banked at CSB for as long as I can remember and when CSB President Kevin Yepsen presented the opportunity to serve on the bank board, I knew it would be a tremendous opportunity,” Good said. “In the short time I have served, I have been exposed to other ways of thinking and thoroughly enjoyed the education stemming from the experiences.

Kevin is so forward thinking and therefore the whole bank always seems to be five steps ahead and never comfortable with the status quo. They are great people to surround yourself with.”  

Good also praised the bank’s level of thoroughness, visionary thinking, detail orientation, and the diversity of board member experiences. 

Eager to grow with the bank and see the trust factor for consumers continue, Good said, “When advice is needed, CSB gives it. They are not afraid to tell you the truth. As a customer, I like knowing that I have this team of experts here to help.”
