HENDERSON, KY – Field & Main Bank has announced changes to its executive leadership team, which go into effect in June. Joe Meyer, partner at BKD, a national CPA and business advisory firm, will join Field & Main Bank to serve as president of the bank. Dale Sights, current president, will continue to play a critical role in the organization and will move up to the position of president of the holding company, Field & Main Bancorp, Inc.

Meyer, a seasoned executive who brings 35 years of public accounting experience to the role, has dedicated much of his practice to facilitating strategic planning for clients in the community banking space. Throughout his practice, Meyer has helped financial institutions grow organically and through acquisitions. That experience is key to furthering the execution of Field & Main’s strategic plan. Additionally, Meyer is skilled in developing and implementing coordinated sales initiatives and has been instrumental in BKD’s growth in the Evansville, Ind., and Nashville markets.

Scott P. Davis, Chairman & CEO of Field & Main Bank, said, “Joe brings a deep understanding of community banking, including opportunities and threats facing the industry. His understanding of accountancy and knowledge of tax and other accounting practices are a huge benefit as we look for acquisition opportunities and further development of our banking practices.” He added, “Hiring Joe as the bank’s new president is part of our organization’s strategic plan for growth and acquisition. Joe’s depth of experience in community banking, bank operations and acquisitions, frees current president, Dale Sights, to focus on other major projects.”

Meyer said, “As a practicing CPA for 35 years, I have seen firsthand how important community banks, like Field & Main, are in helping individuals and businesses succeed. The team at Field & Main is committed to the communities they serve and the success of their clients. I’m excited to join with them in making certain Field & Main continues to be a trusted resource.”

Meyer is a member of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and the Indiana and Kentucky CPA societies. He is a long-time member of the Boys and Girls Club of Evansville, past president of the organization and lifetime member of its board of directors. He serves on the board of directors for the Foundation for Youth and in many other volunteer leadership capacities in his community.

Joe graduated from Purdue University with distinction. He and his wife, Julie, reside in Evansville, Indiana, and have three children and one granddaughter.
