“The day before I was scheduled to leave my basketball coach called and asked if I would prefer to stay and work at the local bank,” he said. “So I started my banking career at Berea Bank & Trust Company as a Teller.

“The bank was soon acquired by the Kentucky Group of Banks and the rest is history.

“As to my current and final employer, it has been a most rewarding and distinct pleasure to be a part of the Community Trust Bank family for 24 years, and an honor to have been market president. My thanks go out to the many mentors, colleagues, and co-workers with whom I have been associated. Without question, the management team that is in place is second to none in the community banking world. I am confident that the staff I am leaving behind are poised to lead CTBI to even greater successes in the years to come.”

“Dave Maynard has been a tremendous asset to Community Trust over many years,” said Mark A. Gooch, Vice Chairman, President and CEO of Community Trust Bancorp. “We wish Dave and his family the very best in the years ahead.”
