Becky Buhr is the senior vice president of finance and retail operations at the Bank of Franklin County in Washington, Missouri, where she has worked since 2001. While she has held many positions throughout the bank over that time, her passion is asset liability management, and she has spent the bulk of her career working in the financial management side of the bank. Most recently, she took over management of the retail side of the bank and is responsible for leading the organization through a bank-wide transformation of branch designs, technological initiatives and the construction of a new, flagship bank branch and operations center. She also chairs the bank’s recently created Community Council which serves as a means for the bank to engage community members in its markets to help give feedback as well as build new relationships and grow the bank’s footprint.
Becky graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Missouri-Columbia’s College of Business in 2004 where she earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in finance/banking and real estate, and went on to earn a master’s degree in finance from Webster University in St. Louis in 2005. She completed the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado in 2010 where she served as a class representative, and went on to serve as the Missouri representative on the GSBC Alumni Advisory Board from 2010-2013.
She is involved in a number of civic and charitable organizations through advisory and fundraising committees, has served on numerous boards in the Franklin County area and is currently the chair of the Missouri Bankers Association Board of Trustees for Banker Education.
