First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIBK) (“First Interstate” or the “Company”) announced today the upcoming retirement of President and Chief Executive Officer Kevin P. Riley and has initiated a search for his successor. Riley will continue to serve in his role as President and CEO until a successor is appointed.

Riley joined First Interstate in 2013 as Executive Vice President and the Chief Financial Officer before becoming President and CEO in 2015.

“On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Kevin for his unwavering commitment to excellence and his leadership of First Interstate,” said Stephen B. Bowman, Chair of the Board, First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. “We are initiating our succession plan from a position of strength as we look to the future and conduct a thorough and comprehensive search for a new leader that will power the next wave of our success.”

“We have a strong balance sheet underpinned by a diverse loan portfolio, strong capital position and deep liquidity profile, which makes this the right moment to embark on a new chapter,” Bowman continued. “The Board’s priority is to identify a leader that continues to embody our culture of integrity, understands the communities we serve, and has the ability to continue to grow the organization, deliver value to our shareholders, and execute our long-term vision for the company.”

The Board has retained a leading global executive recruiting firm to lead the search for the next CEO.

“I have had the great fortune of spending 38 remarkable years in the banking industry, the most exciting and rewarding of which have been the past nine years serving as President and CEO of First Interstate,” Riley said. “I am extremely proud of First Interstate’s significant growth from a $7B community bank located in three states to an over $30B regional community bank covering a 14-state footprint over my tenure. We have accomplished so much as an organization, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work alongside so many talented people.”
