Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) October 30, 2014
Steve Rahill has joined First Liberty Bank as Senior Vice President and Chief Lending Officer, responsible for managing the bank’s loan portfolio and business development efforts.
“I am fortunate to have been associated with many fine people during my career and had some great mentors that taught me what it really meant to be a community banker. In all of those years, I have never been part of a team with more collective talent and commitment to customer satisfaction than the one at First Liberty Bank. We have built a wonderful customer base and are very excited about the future prospects for our bank and community. “
“I actually got in to the banking industry by luck as a way to pay for a graduate program in Industrial Psychology. I quickly realized that I had a passion for community banking and that we could make a real difference in people’s lives. I had a goal to one day be President of a community bank and achieved it in 1988 at the age of 38. Our family spent 17 great years in Duncan where my wife, Cheryl, and I raised our three beautiful daughters.”
“I have learned many valuable lessons in this industry, most importantly the understanding that nearly every business experiences difficult times or surprises in its existence. One of the things that makes a financial institution a community bank is that we take time to know and understand our customers and as long as they are working through those difficult times, we will be there for them. I subscribe to the John Wayne theory, “when the horse bolts, you have to sit deep in the saddle” as a way to let customers know we will work just as hard as they do to keep a relationship strong.”
Rahill graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1972 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. In addition, he holds a graduate degree in banking and brings over many years of management experience to his position.
