Iowa Bankers Association begins search for next CEO

The Iowa Bankers Association is searching for its next leader.

The association said in a press release that John Sorenson will retire as president and CEO at the end of this year. The QTI Group was hired to assist the association in its search for Sorenson’s successor.

Sorensen joined the IBA in 1986; he became president and CEO in 1997.

Sorensen “has displayed an unwavering commitment to the advancement of community banking across Iowa and throughout our industry,” Mary Kay Bates, the association’s chair and president of Bank Midwest. “His retirement leaves big shoes to fill but also provides an opportunity for us to build upon the strong foundation he has laid.”
