Banking wasn’t in Steve Bihlmaier’s career goals. He was working in his father’s successful insurance business alongside his wife. But 12 years ago, his career path took a dramatic leap – across the street to be exact. In April 2002, Steve arrived at the State Farm practice and his father, Gene, a longtime shareholder in The Farmers Bank of Osborne, shared some news.
Asset/liability management (ALM), and interest rate risk analysis may sound like a routine function. Yet the breadth, depth and sophistication required by regulators in these areas are ever-growing (even for the smallest financial institutions in Kansas.) It’s no wonder that for many bankers, effective ALM reporting that keeps the bank in compliance has become more daunting, more complicated and more stressful than ever before.
We’re halfway through a year that has seen BBOK achieve record capital levels. There are a few remaining gremlins hanging on from the 2008 financial crisis. I believe we are on the tail end of resolving several loan related issues that have left earnings below the levels of a year ago. Once behind us, you’ll see the earnings outlook and balance sheet rebound steadily.
Bankers’ Bank of Kansas has designated new titles for four of its key senior managers.
Before it was trendy to have fun at work, BBOK saw the correlation between a happy workplace and satisfied employees. We discovered that people who were happier at work had greater levels of employee engagement, ultimately benefitting our customer banks with greater productivity, improved customer service and greater retention.
At BBOK we try to do our part to advance our industry’s future, and each year we look for outstanding college students with a strong interest in pursuing a banking career. This summer we’re pleased to announce that Morgan Lawrence and Chad Garrett have joined our staff as interns.
