Philo Exchange Bank President named 2024 Banker of the Year

AMELIA ISLAND, FL – During their Salute to Leadership Program at their annual conference, Illinois Bankers Association (IBA) awarded Kevin Rogers, President and CEO of Philo Exchange Bank, with the 2024 Banker of the Year Award.

This annual award is the highest honor the IBA bestows on an individual whose dedication to excellence has profoundly enhanced the banking industry.

It recognizes the recipient’s strength of leadership and commitment to service, applied not only to the banking industry but also in their support for civic and charitable causes.

Randy Hultgren, President and CEO of Illinois Bankers Association said, “This year’s winner is a constant, visible presence in his banks’ community events—whether it’s for the Annual Shred Day or the Santa Breakfast, you’ll always see him actively participating. Over the past 40 years, he has been devoted to the vision and mission of the IBA, immersing himself in numerous banking functions, seminars, workshops, committees, and Board. As a past Chair of the IBA, he dedicated significant time connecting with bankers across the state. He was a strong advocate for the industry in Illinois and in our nation’s Capital. He is a tremendous leader for his bank, staff and their families, customers, and the community. His support and growth of the banking industry will be enduring. “
