Mike Spieler Joins ORLF Team

The Ottumwa Regional Legacy Foundation has added Mike Spieler as its new Vice President of Finance. He will replace Madonna Fisher, who retires April 30.

Most recently, Spieler was Senior Vice President and Financial Officer for People’s State Bank in Albia. His career has included public accounting practice, business financial management, as well as commercial and agricultural lending. He’s also active in his community, serving as a member of the Indian Hills Community College Foundation, and completing service as the current vice-chair of the Monroe County Hospital and Clinics board of trustees. The married, father of four is a native of Sioux City, and a graduate of Iowa State University.

“We’re fortunate, said Legacy CEO Steve Dust, to have Mike join our senior team. He’s an experienced, well-rounded financial professional that will help us continue to find creative ways to serve Ottumwa through strategic grantmaking, while protecting and growing the Foundation’s corpus, said Dust. “He fits within our team, and believes in our community. Those attributes are as important as his financial credentials,” Dust continued. “Mike has an important role to fill. Madonna Fisher is the only person to fill the role in the first 10 years of Legacy’s operation, and has done a stellar job. Mike is one of the few people who can pick up where Madonna has brought us in excellent financial condition, impeccable operational practices, and unimpeachable personal integrity,” Dust concluded.

Spieler started his duties with Legacy Foundation on March 2.
