The Kansas Bankers Association has named a new president and CEO – though he won’t start in that role for three years.
The Topeka-based banking trade group said in a news release Monday that Doug Wareham, executive vice president of government relations, will be its next chief executive following the recent adoption of a long-term succession plan.
But Wareham won’t assume the post until Sept. 1, 2019. That’s when current president and chief executive Chuck Stones plans to retire, according to the release. Stones has been KBA president and CEO since 2004. That’s the same year Wareham joined the association.
“The KBA has achieved a long list of accomplishments under the direction of Chuck Stones and we are very fortunate to have Chuck’s support with helping guide a seamless transition over the course of the next three years,” KBA Chairman Jim Hoskins, CEO of Baxter State Bank, said in the release.
