Being close to the agricultural industry her entire life, farmers trust Kathy Daily to lead them through the intricate aspects of agricultural loans and borrowing. Personal relationships drive her passion and Kathy is thrilled when clients call to tell her how much her dedicated work and knowledge means to them.

Kathy understands that all farms are as unique as the individuals who run them. Meeting those owners and listening to their diverse stories helps her continue to stay connected to what is important in the lending process - enabling customers’ success. Each customer’s unique agricultural operation, both large and small, informs and allows FFB to better understand overall needs across the 49 states they serve.

Outside of work, Kathy cherishes her family. She especially loves spending time with her grandchildren.

Aaron truly “gets it”. As the owner/operator of a diversified farming operation with a poultry broiler farm, beef cattle and grain, Aaron has walked in his customers’ shoes. With over 20 years in the lending business, he still finds the onsite visits one of the most enjoyable parts of the process. Meeting the customer, seeing the operations and learning the “why” behind their plans helps him bring all the pieces together. Nothing makes him happier than helping a customer achieve their goals and knowing that he was able to play a role in the process.
