Ken Singh Named to ICBA Independent Banker’s 40 Under 40: Emerging Community Bank Leaders List
Tampa, Fla. (July 8, 2021) — Independent Banker magazine, the award-winning monthly publication of the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA), unveiled its annual 40 Under 40: Emerging Community Bank Leaders list.
The award recognizes the nation’s up-and-coming community bank innovators and influencers who represent the future of the industry. Ken Singh, executive vice president and chief financial officer at TCM Bank, N.A. is named to the list.
“ICBA congratulates Ken Singh on this well-deserved honor,” ICBA President and CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey said. “Ken is part of a diverse and talented group of community bank professionals selected this year for their great resiliency and a willingness to do what it takes to meet the needs of their communities. We’re pleased to recognize Ken for his willingness to find opportunities to lead and whose actions demonstrate an adherence to the values of community banking.”
The feature story in the June issue of Independent Banker highlights how the 40 Under 40 honorees have overcome challenges and answered calls for innovation while staying true to the guiding principles that make community banking special. Chosen from hundreds of entries, candidates were judged on the following criteria: character, leadership, community involvement, and innovation. Bank technology services provider FIS, of Jacksonville, Fla., sponsored this year’s program.
“I’m honored to be in the company of such a distinguished group and to represent TCM Bank,” Singh said. “I’m thankful to be part of this great industry and to work alongside my community bank colleagues to make a positive impact in the lives of our customers and our communities.”
As chief financial officer, Singh helps lead the bank’s financial activities and is responsible for its accounting and finance operations, asset liability management and the development of its financial strategy. In 2020 he was also elected as TCM Bank’s DEI Officer.
“Being nationally recognized as an industry leader is no small feat,” TCM Bank President and CEO Damon Moorer said. “We are so proud of Ken and everything he has accomplished and thank him for his hard work and dedication to the TCM family, the bank’s mission, and our guiding principles.”
