I am the CEO of DirectorCorps, a privately-held media & publishing company that counts Bank Director (est. 1991) and FinXTech (est. 2015) as its primary assets. As an information resource to the financial community since the early nineties, our team publishes Bank Director magazine, focuses on the convergence of technology with banks through our FinXTech platform, hosts conferences like “Acquire or Be Acquired,” conducts board-level research, provides board education & training programs and runs BankDirector.com & FinXTech.com.
In addition to an audience of CEOs and board members, bank executives (e.g. CFOs, CROs, GCs, etc) we engage with senior-level investment bankers, consultants, accountants, attorneys, venture capitalists, private equity executives, regulators, technologists and government officials. All comprise the massively important community we reach, serve and proudly support.
Recently, I’ve been invited to share my perspectives on the state — and future — of the industry at conferences like the Consumer Bankers Association’s CBA Live, the Association for Financial Technologies annual Summit and Washington & Lee’s Entrepreneurship Summit. I’ve been included in articles on the Wall Street Journal, CNBC and various Business Journals.
If we’re playing the six degrees of separation game…
I am a proud Washington & Lee graduate (’99) where I majored in Politics within the C-school. At W&L, I was a four-year varsity letterman on the University’s baseball team. In addition, I earned my MBA from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business (’07). A native Bostonian (Needham), I went to high school in Dallas (St Mark’s) and St. Louis (MICDS). I have twice lived in New York City for extended periods of time and moved to Washington, D.C. in 2004.
Currently, I live in Chevy Chase, D.C. with my wife and two children. I proudly support am involved with Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington, the largest independent social services agency in the DC area providing critical services to hundreds of thousands of people in need, and a Wider Circle, which provides basic need items to individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness, fleeing domestic abuse, or otherwise trying to lift people out of poverty. Finally, I’m proud to be part of Leadership Greater Washington’s “Sweet 16” class.
