Kobie Bardouille, vice president and relationship manager, Corporate Banking, has been granted the highly-regarded designation of Certified Treasury Professional® (CTP) by The Association for Financial Professionals® (AFP). In doing so, Bardouille brings the highest level of expertise and distinction in treasury management to Associated Bank.


Recognizing the unique skills and wide-ranging knowledge required of treasury professionals, AFP® implemented the certification program in 1986 to define the standards in the corporate treasury and cash management profession. The comprehensive certification exam is periodically reviewed, updated and expanded by an AFP appointed committee of corporate treasury experts to reflect the on-going changes within the profession.


In addition to meeting the program's education and experience requirements, those awarded the CTP designation must complete a minimum of 36 hours of continuing professional education in corporate treasury, finance or accounting every three years to remain certified.
