David King is back at Equity Bank after a brief hiatus to work outside of the profession in which he’s spent most of his career.
Only this time, King, 36, is a market president, which is the reason that the Wichita North High School graduate returned to the industry.
King started in his new role in mid-February.
“The position I’m in now is the opportunity I’ve been working towards for the past 12 years,” he said. “When this was presented to me — a position like this doesn’t come along too often — the decision was pretty simple.”
King is a graduate of Wichita State University, with a bachelor’s degree in finance and a master’s degree in business administration. He worked three years at Emprise Bank and then joined Bankers’ Bank of Kansas, where he worked for nearly three years. He joined Equity in 2006 and was a vice president of commercial lending when he left.
He is married to Melissa and has a 14-year-old stepson, Coleman.
