The Board of Directors of Security Financial Services Corporation (SFSC), the holding company that owns Security Financial Bank (SFB), elected Jack Kaiser as its new chairman effective Tuesday, April 26. He also will serve as chairman of the bank.

Kaiser has served as a director of SFSC and SFB since 2009. He is currently chair of SFB's Directors Loan Committee and a member of the bank's Governance Committee.

Kaiser succeeds Jerry Bauer, who had served as chairman for both SFSC and SFB since 2008. Bauer retired from both Boards after serving for 30 years. 

"On behalf of the Board, shareholders, and SFB employees, I would like to express our gratitude for the service and guidance Jerry Bauer has provided over the past three decades," Kaiser said. "Jerry has clearly shown his dedication to SFSC, the bank, and the customers and communities we serve."
