Emily Kokes has been promoted to the newly created position of Data Reporting Analyst for Premier Farm Credit. Emily’s knowledge, skills and talent make her the perfect candidate for this position, and we look forward to much continued success for her in this new role. She has previously been working as a Capital Markets Analyst in our Administrative office in Sterling.

“Emily is a natural fit for this position,” said Doug Keil, Chief Credit Officer. “She is a quick learner, a hard worker, and a great team member, in addition to being highly skilled. I’m looking forward to working with her in this new capacity.”

In her new role, Emily will be responsible for reporting, stress testing, SOX testing, Young, Beginning and Small borrowing programs, and much more. The role was created in part to deal with growing regulatory and reporting challenges, as well as to better align and define job responsibilities as we transition management roles in the coming months. She will continue to work out of the Administrative office.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to further my career at Premier,” Kokes said. “I am excited for this new role and all it may bring.”

Emily is a graduate of Colorado State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Business with a minor in Business Administration. She came to Premier Farm Credit with work experience that included being a Loan Officer, Loan Clerk Assistant and bank Customer Service Representative. She and her husband Levi are raising their son on the family farm near Crook.
