MATTOON — Brad Beesley, executive vice president for trust and wealth management with First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust, has been ranked as 12th in the nation among Bank Investment Consultant’s Top 25 Program Managers.
Beesley is one of nine investment program managers associated with Raymond James that made the list of 25, compiled annually by Bank Investment Consultant. He serves as a Raymond James branch manager and registered principal.
