Madison, WI (June 2, 2020)Independent Banker magazine, the award-winning monthly publication of the Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA), recently unveiled its annual 40 Under 40: Emerging Community Bank Leaders list.

Josh Marron, Chief Banking Officer at Park Bank is named to the list.

“From CEOs to compliance officers, branch managers, lenders and marketers, this annual award continues to uncover extraordinary talent within the community banking industry,” ICBA President and CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey said. “We congratulate Josh on this well-deserved honor. His deep belief in the community bank business model and passion for supporting his customers and communities, especially in this COVID-19 environment where community bankers continue to step up to serve the needs of customers, should be commended.” 

The feature story, which is included in the newly released ICBA June issue, highlights how the 40 Under 40 honorees have overcome challenges and answered calls for innovation.

Bank technology services provider FIS, of Jacksonville, Fla., sponsored this year’s program.

“Winning this award doesn’t just represent my success, rather the success of the entire Park Bank team. We’ve experienced incredible growth in recent years and none of it would be possible without all 170 of my colleagues.
