Dave Coggins, Executive Vice President – Chief Banking Officer at Investors Community Bank was recently named vice chair of the American Bankers Association (ABA) Ag and Rural Bankers Committee.
The ABA Ag and Rural Bankers Committee is comprised of 14 agricultural and rural bankers from around the country who volunteer their time to provide guidance and recommendations to ABA staff on issues related to ag advocacy. The committee’s work includes ag advocacy, public relations, education and monitoring the farm credit system. This committee of the ABA has been advocating for ag bankers and their farm and rural customers since 1913.
“I am honored to help serve the interests of America’s agricultural industry and continue the tradition of strong ag advocacy for this nation’s farmers through the work of this committee,” said Coggins. “A strong banking system is vital to the interests of agriculture and I appreciate that the ABA understands this and provides support to this important segment of the banking system in America.”
Coggins has been with the bank since 2009 and has over 40 years of lending and leadership experience. Coggins holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. In addition to his work with the ABA, he is actively involved in many community/professional organizations, including serving as a board member and treasurer for Progress Lakeshore and a member of the Wisconsin Bankers Association Government Relations Committee.
