Kentucky Bankers Association names 2019 Emerging Leader

Chris Davis

DANVILLE, Ky. — Chris Davis, Garrard County market manager and loan officer for Farmers National Bank, has been selected by the Kentucky Bankers Association (KBA) for its 2019 Emerging Leaders program.

The KBA’s Emerging Leaders program is designed to find and develop future financial leaders in Kentucky through specific and comprehensive bank and community related activities.

“The Emerging Leaders program is our way of guiding the next generation of bankers into becoming exceptional leaders,” said Ballard W. Cassady Jr., president and CEO of the KBA. “This program is a stepping stone; it not only provides them with experience and engagement among their peers, but it involves them with our organization by giving them a first-hand look at how we work together with our banks on a daily basis to ensure the success of our industry.”

Marty Gibson, president of Farmers National Bank, said Davis is a natural fit for the program. “Chris has shown strong leadership qualities at the bank and within the community. Having had other Farmers National Bank team members complete this program, it has enhanced their knowledge and allowed them to better serve our customers and community. Chris will continue to excel with this opportunity.”

Farmers National Bank ranks as the ninth oldest bank in Kentucky and is celebrating its 140th anniversary. Banking facilities are located in Danville, Burgin, Harrodsburg, Junction City, Lancaster, Perryville and Stanford.
