Patricia Minard

About Me

My name is Patricia J. Minard, CEO and President of Southwest National Bank, which specializes in community banking services. Having been with the bank since 1999, my proudest accomplishment in these 15 years has been the appointment to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City's Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council (CDIAC). Our focus and mission is to provide vital input and information pertaining to the economy, lending conditions and other issues greatly affecting our region.

The foundation I built long ago as a certified public accountant then later as a bank examiner provided the perfect platform for me to serve today as CEO and President. Providing value-added products and exemplary customer service is what we stand on. The ability to effectively lead a staff of 125 employees and help those excel in their careers motivates me.

I received my Bachelors in Business with CPA designation from Kansas State University. I am currently involved with the Kansas Bankers Association, the American Bankers Association and the Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council.

My hobbies and interests include flying. I am a licensed pilot; certified to fly single engine Cessna airplanes. I actively participate in the Air Race Classic, an annual transcontinental air race for female pilots.

I am drawn to and passionate about those charitable organizations that empower and fortify our community. Our banking institution has taken a stand to enforce financial literacy among junior and senior high school students so that a better understanding is gained towards the nature of investments, stock markets and other financial instruments. Previously I served on the Board of Directors with Angel Flight, a national organization comprised of pilots and volunteers who arrange for free air transportation for legitimate, charitable and medically-related needs.

I have found that having a firm support system in place helps pave the way for career success. Having a wonderful husband and three children who have been extremely supportive of my career and endeavors has allowed me to excel.
