Community Bankers Association of Illinois announced the hiring of Patrick Beveridge as chief financial officer, effective Dec. 13.
He replaces Lisa Lippert, who is retiring as controller on Dec. 31, after 22 years with the association.
“CBAI is excited to have Patrick join our team. Although we will miss the fiscal stewardship and dedication Lisa has provided for more than 22 years, we are confident that Patrick is the right person to carry on that same level of commitment to the position. We wish Lisa the best on a well-deserved retirement and welcome Patrick to the team,” said Kraig Lounsberry, CBAI president/CEO.

Beveridge (shown) also has experience in public accounting, including five years at Clifton Gunderson LLP, and he attended the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, where he graduated with an accounting degree.
