Rob Caudill, Assistant Vice President, Commercial Loan Officer at Farmers National Bank, has been selected by the Kentucky Bankers Association (KBA) for its 2023 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 Chief Executive Officer 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.”

“This year’s Emerging Leaders class is an impressive group of bankers from across the state,” Caudill said. “I’m really looking forward to getting to know – and learning from – all of them. The KBA does such a great job educating and supporting the bankers in our state and this program is just another example of that. I’m also very fortunate to work for an organization that encourages professional development, and I am very thankful for all of the support I have at Farmers National Bank. I am really excited to get started.”

The KBA, based in Louisville and celebrating its 132nd year of serving Kentucky banks and their customers, advocates for its member banks and thrifts at the state and national levels. With legislative, regulatory, legal, compliance and educational support, along with vetted and endorsed products and services, the KBA is an integral part of the financial health of the Commonwealth.
