Wilson & Muir Bank congratulates Senior Vice President, Sharron Mathews and CSR, Susan Muir, as they begin their retirement at the end of February after an astounding tenure of 45 years and 49 years respectively. “If the Board of Directors is the head and the employees the body of the institution, Susan and Sharron are the key parts of the heart and soul”, said Frank B. Wilson, President and CEO of Wilson & Muir.

Sharron Matthews began her career with WMB in 1975 holding positions in New Accounts; Loan Administration and Operations; Mortgage Lending; and Branch Management. Sharron has played a key role throughout her tenure including her position as Secretary to the Board since 2006. She remains passionate about her community with involvement in local charities and events including Relay for Life and the Bottoms Up Bash.

Banking has been a family affair for Susan Muir who began her career working after school at the bank in 1971 at the Muir Wilson & Muir Bank in Bloomfield where her father, Nat J. “Sonny” Muir, Jr. was Vice President. Following that bank’s merger with Wilson & Muir Bank & Trust Co in 1983, Susan moved to the Main office in Bardstown where she would become a Client Service Representative beloved by her coworkers and community.

“There is no way to replace either of them because each brings such a unique enthusiasm and energy to the workplace”, said Wilson. “They have clearly left their indelible mark on me and there are dozens, perhaps, hundreds in the WMB bloodline that feel the same. I am eternally grateful they have blessed us with their talents, their work ethic, their positive and rosy attitude and mostly their dear friendship. We may not be the same without them, but we are better because of them”, he concluded.

Both ladies will remain involved with the bank. Susan will transition to a limited part time role as Saturday Greeter and Receptionist at the Main Office and Sharron will remain as Secretary to the Board of Directors.

While COVID, regrettably, prevents a public reception for the ladies, the bank invites the public to reach out via phone and social media if not able to visit the Main Office through the rest of the month.
