Equity Bancshares, the Wichita, KS-based holding company of Equity Bank, promoted Krzysztof P. Slupkowski to chief credit officer, effective Aug. 28. Slupkowski will work with John C. Creech, the company’s outgoing chief credit officer, to transition responsibilities.
“I’m pleased to announce the elevation of Krzysztof to chief credit officer and have confidence he’ll continue to lead our credit administration teams while upholding our robust credit culture and supporting our lending, service and operations teams,” Brad S. Elliott, chairman CEO of Equity Bancshares, said. “We highlight entrepreneurial spirit among our core values, which allows us to promote key leaders from within when our team members seize opportunities.”
Slupkowski joined Equity Bancshares in 2018 and has worked with the company’s largest borrowers as metro market chief credit officer. Prior to joining Equity Bancshares, Slupkowski worked in various credit functions for Commerce Bancshares.
“We continue to serve our customers with a nimble, highly tailored approach, and our teams work together across our franchise to deliver for one another, creating opportunities to make a difference and build a career from the moment they join our company. We hired Krzysztof with a plan to train him to assume this role one day, and we are glad he was able to work with John to finalize his preparation,” Elliott said. “Our entrepreneurial spirit not only helps our brand grow but provides lasting opportunities for dedicated, talented individuals who prioritize customers, communities and colleagues.”
