Exploring an acquisition, growing loans, controlling expenses, identifying emerging technologies, cultivating existing talent, managing capital to sustain and not restrict growth… the myriad issues juggled by bank CEOs continues to grow. By extension, the dynamic between the CEO and a bank’s chairman continues to evolve and has taken on even greater significance as shareholder expectations change, regulatory requirements become more complex and non-bank competition continues to escalate.
At Bank Director’s annual Bank Chairman/CEO Peer Exchange, we welcomed men and women leading their institutions and looking to challenge their status quo, tackle issues with their peers and focus on three major issues:
- Finding Growth
- Finding Talent
- Fending Off Competition
Make no mistake. This is not a lecture series nor a place to sit quietly and be told what’s not working in banking. This two-day exchange of ideas allowed for candid, off-the-record conversations and collaboration with fellow CEOs and chairmen from around the United States to address challenging issues and emerging opportunities.
