Over the past 130 years, CFSB has grown from a single storefront bank to a $1.2B regional institution with locations in four counties, focused on investing in our local communities. Our vision is for CFSB to be the leading financial partner for businesses and families in Western Kentucky. As we have grown and diversified, we have split the traditional role of CEO/President into two positions, which will allow us to more effectively manage day to day operations and provide the level of service our clients and communities expect and deserve.
"As President of CFSB, I will work with our team to make sure that our culture is continually nurtured. We continue to develop the next level of leadership and high performing team members. I will also work daily with our clients, making sure that they know that we value their relationship with CFSB. And, I will combine the above two facets to make sure that our day to day operations meet the expectations of our clients, while providing an atmosphere for our team members to flourish." -Jason Jones
"As Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, my focus will be on Board governance, strategic planning and vision, budgeting and financial reporting, as well as regulatory and legislative advocacy and compliance. Our experienced and committed executive team has almost 230 years combined experience with CFSB, and our long-term goal is to provide a solid capital base from which to fund stable, sustainable, organic growth as Western Kentucky’s premier regional bank." -Michael Radcliffe
