C-10 Podcast: J.R. Buckner, Ep. 46


J.R. Buckner and his wife Kelli, along with three of their children, attended the CYITML Donor Appreciation event at the World War I Museum, featuring Contemporary Christian musician Matthew West, in December 2017.


We wrote this last week, but if you want to know what it looks like to be a leader in business and in the community, you don’t have to look any further than our guest this week.

J.R. Buckner has been the President and CEO of First Federal Bank of Kansas City since April 2014.

After receiving his degree in accounting and management from Park University, Buckner went into banking through a management trainee program in 1994 at a community bank in Lee’s Summit, Mo.

Community is at the heart of his focus, professionally and personally. In fact, under his leadership, FFBKC is involved with various nonprofits and community service projects throughout the greater Kansas City area, including CYITML.
