SPRINGFIELD, Ill., June 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Illinois Bankers Association (IBA) announced that Kevin J. Rogers has been elected chairman of the IBA for 2014-2015. Rogers is president of Philo Exchange Bank in Philo, Ill. He was elected at the IBA's 123rd Annual Conference and Trade Show on June 17 at the Swissotel in Chicago.
Rogers has been in the financial services industry since 1984. In May of 1988, his career took him to the State Bank of Allerton, an institution that acquired the Philo Exchange Bank in 2001. The banks merged in 2004 to form Philo Exchange Bank, and Rogers became president of the bank at that time. He attributes his long career in banking to the training, collaboration and networking provided by the Illinois Bankers Association.
