Just as I did last year, I am taking a break from my regular Friday writing routine to highlight the last few days with our exceptional team. Admittedly, I try to keep the company stuff to a minimum on About That Ratio; however, I feel it is more-than-ok to pull the curtain back a bit and share my pride and enthusiasm for our dynamic team following our “four year” anniversary.
Yes, the Bank Director name/brand came into being in 1991; however, many of the relationships with our hugely influential audience are the result of our core leadership team’s efforts over the past four years. So as we celebrated our team’s four-year anniversary on Wednesday (I’ll explain below), I thought to share some pictures from our time together.
Following the sale of a sister company to the NYSE in 2010, we re-designed our entire business around the information needs of a bank’s leadership team and board. From a proverbial tiger-team of ten, we now boast a talented team of nineteen men and women that I’m proud to work alongside. Of particular note, congratulations to Joan Susie, one of the co-founders of the company, who takes over the role of Chairman from our largest shareholder, Bill King. Bill also deserves more than just a tip-of-the-cap for inviting us down to his farm in Leiper’s Fork. Finally, a BIG-time thank you to everyone for helping with yesterday’s office clear-out. Demolition begins on our new office space next week!
