The chief executive officer of the Indiana Bankers Association has officially announced when he will step down from the position he has held for nearly 10 years. Joe DeHaven will retire December 31 and be succeeded by IBA President Amber Van Til, who will begin her new role the following day.
DeHaven joined the IBA as president and chief operating officer in 2006 following the merger of the IBA and the Community Bankers Association of Indiana. He was promoted to CEO in 2007, while Van Til was named president earlier this year as part of the IBA’s transition plan.
The IBA says during DeHaven’s tenure as CEO, the association expanded its membership to include all Indiana-headquartered banks and most out-of-state banks operating in Indiana. The IBA also nearly tripled its budget during that time.
Prior to the IBA/CBAI merger, DeHaven served as CBAI president and CEO from 1990 to 2006.
