New Leadership in Oklahoma
Oklahoma is one of the regions where we focus because it has potential for strong, continued growth. We have a couple of exciting leadership changes to announce that reflect our strong commitment to developing top associates and to continue our development and growth of the Oklahoma region.
David Hardy is now the CEO of the Oklahoma region, and Matt Badsky has been promoted to market president of Tulsa.
In his previous role as executive vice president, Tulsa market leader, David made great strides in developing the Tulsa market, so this change keeps him focused on building those relationships while also overseeing Oklahoma City and leading the commercial sales teams in those cities. He is dedicated to our customers and will bring additional growth to this region, I’m sure.
Matt’s move to Tulsa to become the market president comes after his role as the chief credit administrative officer of the Kansas region in Wichita. His extensive lending expertise and commercial business development skills, as well as his dedication to UMB and our customers, will have a remarkable impact on the Tulsa region.
Mr. Trout joined UMB in 1988. As Regional CEO for Kansas and Oklahoma, he is responsible for the profitability, leadership development and commercial banking oversight of his regions. Mr. Trout has over 25 years of experience in the financial industry. He earned his MBA from Avila University, and his Executive Leadership Certificate from Washington University.
