Capitol Federal® Announces Ricketts Promotion

September 24, 2012
Capitol Federal's 119th Year of True Blue® Service


TOPEKA, Kan. – John B. Dicus, Chairman of Capitol Federal® Savings Bank, Topeka, announces the promotion of first vice president Carl Ricketts to executive vice president, effective September 30, as he accepts the Corporate Services Division position left by the retirement of Larry Brubaker.  Ricketts came to the Bank in 2007 with 25 years’ experience in the electric and gas utility industry; the last 12 years in executive management.  In 1980 and 1981, respectively, he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Master’s degree in Business Administration from Emporia State University.

Chairman Dicus remarked, “Since joining the Bank, Ricketts has served as Chief Strategic Planning Officer while working for executive vice presidents Larry Brubaker and Kent Townsend.  Revealing his leadership qualities, he has worked closely with ALCO members and led the way on several major projects for the Bank, including overseeing the operations of the Stock Information Center during the recent Second-Step Conversion.  Having watched him in action, we know the transfer of the Corporate Services Division from Larry into the hands of Carl will be seamless, continuing the Division’s tradition of strength and support for the Bank.”

Ricketts advances Capitol Federal’s corporate principle of “Commitment to the Community”.  He serves on the boards of Midland Care Hospice in Topeka, Emporia State University Foundation, Emporia State University Business School, and Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence.
