Promotions Position INTRUST Bank for the Future
Newton, Kan. – 02/24/21 – INTRUST Bank is excited to announce the promotions of Kimberly Richtig, Nathan Murphy, and Sal Lujano – expanding the organization’s commitment to serving customers throughout Harvey County.
Kimberly Richtig has been promoted to Community Bank President in Harvey County. Richtig started her banking career with First Bank of Newton in 2001 and has since served in multiple capacities in her tenure including banking center manager, marketing director, and most recently market manager for INTRUST banking centers throughout Harvey County. INTRUST Bank and First Bank of Newton merged in November of 2019.
“Kimberly brings a wealth of banking experience, and a deep understanding of the community to her role,” said Charlie Chandler, chairman and CEO at INTRUST Bank. “My family has been involved in serving customers in the Newton community for over 50 years, and I have been able to observe Kimberly’s work in my previous role as a board member for First Bank of Newton. She is a key member of the community’s leadership team, providing counsel and support to customers throughout her career.”
As community bank president, Richtig will lead customer-focused initiatives for INTRUST and be deeply engaged in community activities including her ongoing involvement as a volunteer for the Saint Matthew’s Representative Payee Program – a service devoted to helping its beneficiaries obtain financial security.
“Harvey County is a positive and vibrant community we call home,” said Kimberly Richtig, community bank president. “Our customers are my neighbors, my friends and fellow volunteers – I feel a deep sense of responsibility to connect them to banking resources that support their financial well-being, and I am honored to continue doing so as community bank president.”
INTRUST has also committed to building its commercial lending team with the promotions of Nathan Murphy and Sal Lujano.
Nathan Murphy, promoted to Commercial Relationship Manager, now oversees commercial banking efforts for the market. Murphy started his career at First Bank of Newton and rejoined INTRUST Bank in 2020 after working six years at Koch Industries as a credit analyst and logistics planner. He is a lifelong Newton resident and currently serves on the board of directors for United Way of Harvey County and the North Newton Housing Authority.
Sal Lujano, promoted to Commercial Lender, is principally focused on developing and managing customer relationships. Lujano previously served as a branch manager and consumer loan officer where he guided customers through the lending process for auto and home loans. Devoted to supporting his community, he currently participates as a board member for the Newton Chamber, Newton Young Professionals, and the Drug Free Newton Commission – a group dedicated to decreasing drug and alcohol use among high school students in Harvey County.
“The success of our customers is core to everything we do,” said Richtig. “Nathan and Sal’s contributions to the commercial team assure us that our customers are well-positioned for years to come.”
Built on foundational values that endure, INTRUST has been growing with customers and supporting communities throughout Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas for more than 140 years. The bank, originally chartered in 1876, is now managed by the fourth generation of Chandler family leadership and is rooted in a tradition of continuous innovation with a personal touch.
