Situated between our four established Louisville and Frankfort locations, the Revolution announces the roll out of its 14th market. As one of the fastest growing banks in the state and the fifth largest, Independence Bank is optimistic about opening in Shelby County.
Newly named market President Brian Webb, a lifelong Shelby County resident, will lead the regional community Bank. His banking career, spanning three decades, has a concentration in Commercial Lending.
“I am enthusiastic about the opportunity to engage and evolve as we welcome additional employees and create a top tier team,” Webb expressed. “There is no doubt that being able to make local decisions makes a lasting impression. Creating and maintaining personal connections with customers is a top priority.”
Webb earned a Business Management degree from the University of Kentucky. He and his wife, a Shelby County High School educator, have three daughters. Outside of the office, he enjoys golfing and spending time at the lake. Webb says it is inspiring to see the purposes that push philanthropic pursuits.
Last year, the financial institution gave back roughly $1.2 million to various charitable causes throughout the footprint to ensure basic needs were met.
Independence Bank Chairman and CEO Chris Reid shared, “Shelby County is a strong community that still has a need for a successful community bank. We encourage our Bank family to find passion projects. By backing the causes that are important to them, we increase involvement to make a meaningful impact. We believe the way we do business and how we support the communities we serve will be well received.”
This news comes just three months after plans were made public to also enter Lexington.
Independence Bank was primarily located in the western part of The Bluegrass State, but has gradually become a top contender throughout central Kentucky.
“Our newest location in Shelbyville is the bridge between the Bank’s successful Jefferson and Franklin County markets,” Independence Bank President Jacob Reid explained. “We always start with finding the right bankers. Independence Bank looks forward to assembling a strong team of individuals, alongside of Brian, who will continue to put the needs of their customers first as they have done for many years.” A community board is in the process of being crafted to help drive growth and direction for the market. Additional details will be provided once a location is determined.
Independence Bank is a regional community bank with 28 locations in Calloway, Daviess, Fayette, Franklin, Graves, Hancock, Henderson, Hopkins, Jefferson, McCracken, McLean, Shelby, Warren and Webster counties. One of the fastest growing banks in Kentucky and fifth largest, Independence Bank possesses the size and experience to serve the largest and most complex clients and offers trust and investment services and agricultural services. As a banking revolution for the people, by the people, central to Independence Bank’s mission is doing what is right and fair for customers, communities and employees. Independence Bank has been recognized in multiple categories by the American Bankers Association, including being named a Top Performing Bank and Best Bank to Work For, for 12 consecutive years, a Best Place to Work in Kentucky for 12 years and has assets totaling $3.2 billion.
