BOK Financial Corp. will move the CEO of its Bank of Kansas City to Oklahoma City to lead that market for Bank of Oklahoma, the company said Friday.

The new Oklahoma City market CEO and chairman will be Marc Maun, CEO and chairman of Bank of Kansas City, which like Bank of Oklahoma, is a division of Tulsa-based BOK Financial.

Maun succeeds Mark Funke, who left earlier this month to become CEO of Southwest Bancorp, the parent of Stillwater National Bank. Funke had led the Oklahoma City market operations for Bank of Oklahoma for 15 years.

BOK Financial also named John Higginbotham as president of the Oklahoma City for Bank of Oklahoma, a position that previously was vacant. Higginbotham was Bank of Oklahoma's chief operating officer in Oklahoma City and had previously led corporate banking.

Maun has a long business history in Oklahoma. During his 28-year career with BOK Financial, Maun has overseen significant business divisions such as treasury, international banking, mergers and acquisitions, corporate banking and correspondent banking. He also is a previous graduate of Leadership Oklahoma.

Higginbotham begins his new job immediately; Maun will assume his new post Oct. 15.

Bank of Oklahoma is the state's largest bank.
