For men and women determined to run successful financial organizations, regardless of the challenging business climate they must operate in, Bank Director offered its fifth annual Bank Chairman/CEO Peer Exchange.

By design, we built this exclusive one and a half day event around a small number of presentations and peer exchange sessions where participants shared their thoughts in a private, off-the-record setting.  This format allowed for in-depth discussions of critical, and sometimes sensitive, issues for bank CEOs, Chairmen and Lead Directors to consider with their contemporaries.

Peer sessions focused on Building a Strong Franchise, Balancing Risk, and Opportunities to Attract New Leaders and Key Staff.

Session Highlights Included:

  • Bank Industry Update
    Ben A. Plotkin, Executive Vice President, Keefe Bruyette & Woods Inc., A Stifel Company
  • Keynote Speaker
    Jay Sidhu, Chairman & CEO, Customers Bank
  • Perspectives on Cyber Security & Digital Issues
