Item 5.02
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On August 21, 2019, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Richmond Mutual Bancorporation, Inc. (the “Company”) approved an increase in the size of the Board from seven to eight directors and appointed Harold T. Hanley III to fill the vacancy created by such increase.  This appointment will be effective as of September 1, 2019.  Mr. Hanley will serve in the class of directors whose terms expire in 2022.  Mr. Hanley has not been appointed to any Board committees of the Company as of the date of this filing.  Mr. Hanley will also join the board of directors of First Bank Richmond (the “Bank”), the Company’s wholly owned banking subsidiary, subject to receipt of any required regulatory approvals.

Mr. Hanley, until his retirement in August 2019, was a Managing Director of  Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, Inc., a Stifel Company (”KBW”).  He joined KBW in January of 1995 after 14 years as Chief Financial Officer of two financial institutions located in the Midwest.  Prior to entering the financial services industry, Mr. Hanley was with KPMG (Peat Marwick & Co.) for several years. During his career with KBW,  Mr. Hanley led many financial institutions in their mutual conversions and stock offerings.   He has also managed both the buy and sell sides of many merger and acquisition transactions of financial institutions, provided financial consulting services to clients in conjunction with their capital management strategies, and provided advice to assist in reaching their financial objectives.  Over the years Hanley has been a regular speaker at various Banking Conferences. Hanley earned his Bachelor of Business Administration degree from The University of Toledo in 1975 and obtained his CPA license in 1976.

There was no arrangement or understanding pursuant to which Mr. Hanley was selected as a director of the Company.  There are no family relationships between any of the Company’s directors or officers and Mr. Hanley.

The Company paid KBW fees totaling approximately $1.3 million for its role as financial advisor and records agent in connection with the Bank’s reorganization from the mutual holding company structure to the stock holding company form of organization and the Company’s related stock offering in which the Company raised gross proceeds of approximately $130.3 million.  The reorganization and stock offering were completed on July 1, 2019.  As stated above, Mr. Hanley, prior to his retirement from KBW in August 2019, was a Managing Director of KBW and was responsible for overseeing the Company’s reorganization and stock offering.  As a Managing Director of KBW, Mr. Hanley’s compensation for 2019 consisted of his base compensation plus a bonus to be paid in March of 2020 related to both Mr. Hanley’s performance and the firm’s overall performance during the prior year.  Base compensation and bonuses are determined by KBW’s senior management committee  (of which Mr. Hanley was not a member), are subjective and are not based on any pre-determined formula.  Except as set forth above, there are no related party transactions of the kind described in Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K in which Mr. Hanley was a participant or in which Mr. Hanley has any direct or indirect material interest.

Mr. Hanley is eligible to receive compensation for his service in accordance with the Company’s standard compensation arrangements for non-employee directors as described under the heading “Management - Director Compensation” in the Company’s prospectus dated May 6, 2019, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) on May 16, 2019.

On August 21, 2019, the Company issued a press release announcing the appointment of Mr. Hanley as a member of the Board.  A copy of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.
