Nicolet Bancshares announced a change in the titles of two executive officers. Mike Daniels was named president and CEO, and Bob Atwell was named executive chairman. At the operating company, Nicolet National Bank, Atwell will continue as chairman, and Daniels will continue as president and CEO, a leadership structure that has been in place since 2015.
“Bob and I have always played to our strengths, not our job titles, which is a benefit of our unique partnership as entrepreneurial founders of Nicolet. We don’t see this title change as a new chapter. While we are mindful of succession planning, we view it as a process, not an event,” Daniels said. “Over the years, we have been intentional about finding and nurturing talent at all levels of the organization. I am honored to continue leading an outstanding team that is focused on our purpose to serve customers, communities and each other.”
