BOK Financial in Tulsa, Okla., is readying for the final stage of CEO succession.
The $47 billion-asset company said in press release Wednesday that Steve Bradshaw will retire as president and CEO on March 31.
Stacy Kymes, BOK’s chief operating officer, will succeed Bradshaw. Kymes joined the company’s board on Tuesday.
Kymes, who has been with BOK for 25 years, has served in various positions, including chief auditor, director of mergers and acquisitions and chief credit officer. Prior to joining BOK, Kymes was a senior auditor with KPMG US.
Kymes “has had deep and varied experience with the company’s lines of business and supporting functions during his career,” George Kaiser, BOK’s chairman, said in the release. “He has proved able to understand each new responsibility quickly and respond creatively to problems or opportunities.”
