PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - An Eastern Kentucky woman is being recognized as one of the most powerful women in banking.
Jean Hale, President and CEO of Community Trust Bank, received the honor as one of the Top 25 Women in Banking from American Banking Magazine.
Hale has been with Community Trust for 43 years.
The rankings are featured in this month's issue of the magazine.
"It's truly an honor to be recognized as one of the 25 most powerful women in banking, but it's more of an honor because it is reflective of the over one thousand employees in Kentucky, West Virginia, and Tennessee that work hard every day for Community Trust Bancorp," said Hale.
A formal award ceremony will be held later this month in New York City.
