Amber R. Van Til has been named president of the Indiana Bankers Association and designated the successor to current CEO S. Joe DeHaven, who is set to retire in 2017, the group announced Tuesday.
The IBA’s board of the directors voted last week to promote Van Til, who was the executive vice president of the banking industry advocacy group, effective March 31. Van Til is the first woman to hold the title of IBA president.
Van Til, 38, joined the association in 2002 as a lobbyist, and also has served as its vice president and senior vice president of government relations.
The Martinsville native graduated from the University of Indianapolis in 1999 and the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in 2002. She serves on the board of directors of the Indiana Statewide Certified Development Corp. and is a member of the Governmental Affairs Society of Indiana, The Columbia Club and Indiana Society of Association Executives.
DeHaven, 66, has served as CEO of the IBA since October 2006.
