Kentucky Banker Spotlight

Luther Deaton
Chairman, President & CEO
Central Bank & Trust Company

At Central Bank, we continue to prioritize service to our customers, which has been made possible as our employees have stepped up to the plate time and time again over the last several weeks. Our Central Bankers have worked tirelessly to ensure that our customers are not only aware of their options for banking services and resources, but that they feel supported during this time of tremendous uncertainty.

Similarly, I have been so impressed by our community of customers and small businesses. They have quickly adapted, and continued to adapt, to a changing environment, while also continuing to support each other.

I have been nothing short of amazed by their efforts to keep the needs of the community at the forefront of everything they do. Keeping in mind our own need to adapt, we continue place the most up-to-date information about banking services and resources on our website at, providing our customers with a resource that is available to them 24 hours a day.

We will continue to move forward and adapt for as long as this crisis persists, knowing that we will come out on the other side of all of this together.
