Steve Erdel ’73 Named a Top CEO for Three Consecutive Years
Steve Erdel ’73 ΒΘΠ is on a winning streak. The CEO of Central Bank of Boone County was named Top CEO in Columbia, MO, in the June 27 issue of the Columbia Business Times — a designation he earned in 2017 and nearly earned last year (Erdel was No. 2 in 2018).
“I am humbled and honored to again be recognized as a Top CEO,” he says.
Erdel, who also is Vice Chair of Central Bancompany in Jefferson City, MO, has served as CEO of Central Bank since 2006.
A native of Mexico, MO, Erdel majored in economics and political science at Westminster. Not one to brag about his success, Erdel credits his streak of “Top CEO” awards to those he works with.
“I know that it sounds trite, but it is all about our people and, from them, our culture,” he says. “Our staff honestly cares about our customers and one another. It is truly a pleasure to be associated with Central Bank of Boone County.”
