Frederick’s responsibilities will include providing oversight to the bank’s retail operations as well as marketing and human resources.
“I am pleased to welcome Lisa to the Reliance Bank team,” said Brouster. “Lisa was an integral part of the leadership team I assembled at Pioneer Bank.

She was the former board chairman of the South County YMCA, having chaired the Partners in Youth Capital Campaign, and was nominated for inclusion in the “Fabulous 50 Women of St. Louis” by the Old Newsboys Day organization.
Frederick is a St. Louis native. She holds a degree in Business Administration from University of Missouri – St. Louis.
Frederick’s appointment is effective immediately.
