Officers

Calvin Coady President / CEO Serving BBOK customers since 1998

Resilience is one of Calvin's unique talents, one that has carried him through three decades of financial industry turmoil and triumphs. As one of the youngest of seven kids, Calvin cultivated the fine art of adaptability from an early age. Today, he uses it to coach his work family as they craft solutions for bank customers. Through service on regional and national financial boards and committees, Calvin serves as a voice for Kansas banks across all segments -- ultimately benefiting customers, employees and the banking industry.

Calvin doesn't know a stranger and values his time spent with his wife, Angie, family and friends. Even his solitary motorcycle rides across Kansas become social occasions, often concluding with a meeting of the minds at a Mainstreet watering hole.

Teri Ginther Executive Vice President
Chief Operating Officer
Serving BBOK customers since 2020

Scanning checks in the basement of a Western Kansas community bank, young Teri Ginther would venture upstairs to witness long lines of antsy customers. She was convinced that a little lobby rearranging and someone to be a first point of contact for customers would exponentially improve the customer experience. Her idea received lukewarm reception but Teri was unfazed, spending the following weekend moving lobby furniture to better demonstrate her grand plan. Throughout her banking career, Teri has sought unconventional solutions to shift culture, embracing change as an opportunity to create the best iteration of the bank for employees and customers.
