Availa Bank Announces New Carroll Market President
Carroll, Iowa (January 26, 2022) – Availa Bank is pleased to announce that Bryan Moore, former Vice President Loan Officer at the Carroll branch of Availa Bank, has accepted the position of Carroll Market President.
As the new Carroll Market President, Moore will be responsible for providing leadership and direction for the Carroll location in all departments, including loan supervision, accounting, marketing, retail, and the daily operations of the bank.
Moore has experience in a range of leadership roles and industries, having previously held positions as a Production Supervisor and Department Supervisor before his latest role as Vice President Loan Officer at Availa Bank. He has a B.A. from Central College, an M.B.A from Midland University, and has also attended IBA Commercial Lending School and IBA Agricultural Lending School.
Moore is active in Carroll County as a member of the Carroll Area Child Care Center and Preschool Board and as a member of the Business Improvement Committee in Manning, Iowa. He previously attended the 2019 Carroll County Leadership Institute.
Moore comes from Panora, Iowa but has lived in Manning since 2018 and plans to move to Carroll in the spring of this year. He has a wife, Ashley, and three children: Evelyn, Sloan, and Corbin. When he’s not at work, Moore enjoys golfing, hiking, bike riding, boating, spending time with family and friends, and traveling to Iowa City for football and tailgating in the fall.
Jeff Scharfenkamp, CEO and President of Availa Bank, says of Moore’s new role, “I am very pleased to see Bryan take on the role of our Carroll Market Leader. He brings energy and enthusiasm to the role and understands the importance of serving our customers and the Carroll community. Bryan immersed himself into helping many people and businesses in the Carroll community by leading Availa Bank’s efforts in the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program.”

A key attribute of Bryan is his ability to understand opportunities in a way that benefits individuals and communities. Bryan’s leadership talents are numerous and similar to past presidents that have served Availa in our 150+ year history,” he says.
