WASHINGTON-The credit union trades will not have to contend with banking stalwart Ken Guenther, president and CEO of the Independent Community Bankers of America, much longer. Guenther recently announced that he would be retiring at the organization’s next convention in March 2004. Camden “Cam” Fine has been chosen as the president and CEO-elect. Guenther has been with ICBA since 1979 and served in the top spot since 1982. “It has been an honor and a privilege to represent the nation’s community banks for more than 20 years,” he said. “They are the vital backbone of Main Street America.” However, Guenther will not be completely severed from the lobby group; he will continue consulting after his retirement. CEO-elect Fine is a native Missourian and is currently the president of Midwest Independent Bank in Jefferson City, Mo., which serves community banks in three states. He served as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army’s Signal Corps. and was educated at the Virginia Military Institute and the University of Missouri-Columbia.
