Kevin Riley has been the President/CEO of First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. for just over a month. He’s excited to be making the rounds throughout Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota to meet our dedicated customers and employees. In the meantime, we thought we’d share a short video that provides a little deeper insight into our new leader.
Mr. Riley has 27 years of banking experience, most recently serving as our Chief Financial Officer before his appointment as President/CEO in September of this year. Prior to that, Mr. Riley served in a number of executive-level positions for several institutions, including Berkshire Hills Bancorp, a $5.3 billion financial holding company headquartered in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and KeyCorp, a $90 billion bank holding company headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. Mr. Riley graduated from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting.
