South Central Bank
South Central Bank regional president Brandon Fogle overseas several regional markets through his job, but he still calls Hardin County home. Through his position at South Central Bank, Fogle, 38, overseas finances at bank locations in Owensboro, Lexington, Louisville and Elizabethtown.
“Honestly, I can say that I have some amazing people on my team,” Fogle said. “They are all well-seasoned bankers, so a lot of my time is not necessarily management, but moreso of collaboration and strategy.”
Fogle’s career in banking started in 2004 at Forcht Bank in Lexington, working as a loan review analyst. He later became assistant to bank founder Terry Forcht, who has created or acquired nearly 100 businesses throughout his career.
“I was exposed to multiple business lines and management styles,” Fogle said.
Fogle began working at South Central Bank in 2010 as a senior leader. He was promoted to regional president in 2017.
Fogle describes his management style as a combination of a coach and a cheerleader.
“In being a coach, I can layout the technical aspect of banking and explain the
vision of what management wants us to accomplish,”
Fogle said. “From there, I
turn to cheerleader, helping
my staff to perform individually and as a team. The best
part and most rewarding part of my job is when a team comes together and performs above expectations.”
Duke Perdue, who nominated Fogle, said Fogle has proven himself as a great leader throughout his time at the bank.
“Not many people that I know have completed the level of growth and success that he has in just nine short years,” Perdue said.
Fogle also used his leadership skills as a board member for the United Way of Central Kentucky board, serving as co-chair for the Community Investment Team, as the board’s treasurer and as chair of the finance committee. Fogle was inducted into the United Way of Central Kentucky Hall of Fame in 2016.
Fogle also serves on the
finance committee for the Elizabethtown Police Foundation.
“I have always felt that everyone can be great, they just sometimes need a hand,” Fogle said. “That is why community service is important to me.”
Fogle lives on a farm outside of Rineyville with his wife, Danelle, and two sons, Xavier and Oxford. He and Danelle recently became the new co-owners of Elizabethtown Florist and Fogle now assists with deliveries on weekends and major holidays.
“I get to get out to see people while not in a suit,” Fogle said.
