The KBA’s Emerging Leaders program is designed to find and develop future financial leaders in Kentucky through specific and comprehensive bank and community related activities.

“The Emerging Leaders program is our way of guiding the next generation of bankers into becoming exceptional leaders,” said Ballard W. Cassady Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of the KBA. “This program is a stepping stone; it not only provides them with experience and engagement among their peers, but it involves them with our organization by giving them a first-hand look at how we work together with our banks on a daily basis to ensure the success of our industry.”

“I am delighted to be selected for such an outstanding program,” said Brandon. “The program’s focus on leadership development, peer networking, community outreach, and professional growth will provide me with valuable skills to serve The Murray Bank, our local community, and our entire state.”

Born and raised in Calloway County, Brandon is a graduate of Murray State University and has over 18 years in the banking industry. She’s a volunteer with Soup for the Soul, Community Kitchen, and the Calloway County School system.

“The banking industry is proud to have such strong future leadership to assist in strengthening Kentucky, its communities and its banking industry,” said Debra K. Stamper
