Brent Beardall, president and CEO of Washington Federal, Inc. and Washington Federal Bank continues to make significant progress recovering from a small plane crash in early January in Provo, Utah. Beardall, who is undergoing extensive physical therapy at the Rehabilitation Hospital at the University of Utah Health, expects to be discharged from the hospital on February 10, 2023, and return to his duties at WaFd Bank full time beginning February 13, 2023. Executive vice president and chief consumer banker Cathy Cooper assumed Beardall's duties in his absence. WaFd Bank, a federally insured Washington state-chartered bank with headquarters in Seattle, has more than 200 branches in eight western states.
