Kim Kirk, COO, Receives Standout Honor on American Banker’s 2021 MOST POWERFUL WOMEN List

Queensborough is pleased to announce Kim Kirk, the bank’s Chief Operations Officer, has received a Standout honor as part of American Banker’s 2021 Most Powerful Women program.

This year’s honorees are finding new opportunities amid the pandemic and the recovering economy, creating more pathways for women leaders and supporting their teams and organizations as they demonstrate resilience and develop new ways of working. 


“The women on this list are at the forefront of significant changes across the financial services industry and in society more broadly,” said Bonnie McGeer, Executive Editor of American Banker and Chair of the Most Powerful Women in Banking and Finance program. "They are leading reinvigorated efforts to increase diversity of all kinds in the senior ranks, concepting the future of work and helping central banks explore the idea of developing digital currencies, to name just a few of the many initiatives they have underway."


In another year full of disruption and uncertainty, the honorees continue to show exceptional leadership skills as they forge a new landscape for the industry. “I am incredibly honored to be one of three women recognized as Standouts in Community Banking,” says Kirk.
