BOK Financial accelerates CEO succession

BOK Financial in Tulsa, Okla., has accelerated the succession plan for its president and CEO. 

The $47 billion-asset company said in a press release Wednesday that Steven Bradshaw will retire on Dec. 31. He will be succeeded by Stacy Kymes, the company’s chief operating officer.

BOK said in August that Bradshaw would retire on March 31. 

“It has been an extreme honor to serve BOK Financial and to play a role in the company’s 100-plus years of growth,” Bradshaw said in Wednesday’s release. “I look forward to becoming the company’s number one advocate as I move into the next phase of my life.” 

Bradshaw joined the company in 1991 after selling his wholly owned retail brokerage business to BOK Financial. He held numerous leadership positions at the company before being named CEO in 2014.
