Goebel-bly to take over for retiring Sellnau at First Central's Goose Lake location

First Central State Bank’s Goose Lake location will welcome a new Branch Manager after Kathy Sellnau’s retirement. The new manager will be a familiar face among the First Central team members.
 
Maggie Goebel-Bly will take over for Sellnau, who is retiring after 21 years with First Central. Sellnau will remain with the bank until April. Goebel-Bly, who began with First Central at its DeWitt location, is now stationed at the Goose Lake location and is an Assistant Vice President, Private Banker and Branch Manager.
 
First Central State Bank President and CEO Brigham Tubbs said that while he’s happy to see Goebel-Bly take over in this role, Sellnau’s experience will be missed.
 
“Maggie’s experience as a banker will help make this transition smooth into the Goose Lake role,” Tubbs said. “We also acknowledge the big shoes Kathy leaves to fill. She’s been a tremendous asset to our company’s culture and will be missed.”
 
Goebel-Bly, who owns more than 17 years of banking experience, is in her second year at First Central State Bank. During her tenure as a banker, she has spent time as a teller, Customer Service Representative, IRA Administrator, lender, and Private Banker.
 
“I look forward to getting to know the customers and servicing their financial needs,” Goebel-Bly said. “I also look forward to volunteering in the Goose Lake community.”
 
Goebel-Bly currently volunteers for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Clinton County.
 
Sellnau will retire from First Central State Bank after overseeing continued growth in the market, along with a building remodel completed in 2020. She also has been the leader of the annual Grilling For Charity fundraiser in Goose Lake, which donates to the Northeast Athletic Boosters each year.
 
“We appreciate all that Kathy has done for us throughout our eastern Iowa footprint, with an emphasis on Goose Lake,” Tubbs said. “She’s maintained quality relationships and is a driving force in promoting the foundations of community banking.”
 
A reception will be held at a later date for Sellnau.
