Scott Butt appointed new board member

Scott E. Butt recently was appointed to the board of directors for TPB Bancorp and its subsidiary, The Peoples Bank.

Butt was sworn in Sept. 11. He will serve the remaining term of John H. “Butch” Robertson, who passed away June 7.

Wm. Mark Norman, president of TPB Bancorp and The Peoples Bank, said Robertson had been a valued member of the board of directors since 1997 and will be greatly missed by the employees, officers and directors of The Peoples Bank and the community.

Butt is a 1983 graduate of Brownstown Central High School and a 2010 graduate with honors from Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus and has a Bachelor of Science degree.

He is the managing partner and president of Family Drug Inc. He began at Family Drug in 2001 by starting the Durable Medical Equipment and Oxygen Program and assumed positions of greater leadership and responsibility, culminating in being appointed to his present position in 2014.

In the community, he is a member of the Brownstown cemetery board and a past member of the Brownstown Chamber of Commerce board of directors, Brownstown Central Middle School advisory board, Lutheran Central School board of directors, Jackson County Industrial Development Corp. board of directors and Jackson County Visitor Center board of directors.

Norman said the directors felt Butt will be a valuable asset to the bank and community.

“He is a respected business owner, and his philosophies match that of the board of directors and the bank,” Norman said. “We welcome Mr. Butt to the TPB Bancorp and The Peoples Bank board of directors and look forward to working with him for the benefit of our institution and community.”

Butt and his wife, Patricia, live in Brownstown and have a son, Samuel, and a daughter, Katherine.
