Nathan Forkner of Nevada was a featured panelist during a presentation at the Missouri Bankers Association's Executive Management Conference in Kansas City Dec. 4. The "Match.com for Bankers" panel discussion focused on learning firsthand from emerging clients -- new business owners and young professionals -- about their needs in a banking relationship. Forkner, who owns and operates a diversified crop and livestock farm near Nevada, was one of four panelists participating in the discussions. Other panelists joining Forkner (from left) included Tyler Sallee, vice president of Sallee Homes in Lee's Summit; Cory Jones, a member of Shook, Hardy & Bacon's sports law practice in Kansas City; and Brad Sandt, president and CEO of K12ITC in Kansas City. The panel presentation was moderated by Stephanie O'Keefe, executive vice president for communications of the American Bankers Association in Washington, D.C.
