Scott Kemp is the new senior lending officer at The First National Bank & Trust Co. of Shawnee, Oklahoma. Kemp brings a high degree of knowledge to First National Bank, thanks to his years of experience in the sector.

“The best part about commercial lending is the diversity in customers and loan requests,” Kemp said. “Each request is unique, so you gain experience as a lender, and it ensures that the job never gets boring.” He enjoys the variety his career allows, which keeps his daily routine interesting.

Kemp previously worked in both large commercial and community banking sectors and held regional management roles at Union Bank and Wells Fargo.

His degree of expertise and knowledge of banking and accounting processes prepared him for the new position as senior lending officer, which he accepted in June 2021.
