“Craig brings over twenty years of accounting experience and a wealth of banking expertise to our bank,” said H. Lytle Thomas, President & CEO. “We’re glad to have his financial knowledge and leadership as we continue to grow and expand our Northern Kentucky and Ohio markets.”

A former partner in the Cincinnati offices of top-tier U.S. CPA and advisory firm, BKD, LLP, Liechty comes to Heritage following his role as Office Managing Shareholder in the Nashville, Tenn. office of Elliott Davis Decosimo, LLC where he oversaw the office’s daily operations and strategic growth.

He successfully managed and grew their client base and advised clients on a multitude of issues ranging from implementing new accounting pronouncements, advising on regulatory issues, and mitigation of risk.

“Craig’s credentials speak for themselves,” said Chris Caddell, the bank’s Chairman. “The fact that he’s a devoted, faith-driven family man made our decision quite easy.”

Liechty graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting.
