Thank you to everyone who attended the IBAT Leadership Conference and, once again, made it an affair to remember. This year’s conference included more than 265 attendees (including 65 first-timers), who connected with one another through focused leadership training, established networking designed to enhance relationships, and hot topic breakouts geared towards operations, lending, sales and marketing.
Congratulations to Peter Smith, Senior Vice President and Commercial Lending Officer with Happy State Bank, on his selection to receive the 2014 Excellence in Leadership Award. Peter, a graduate of the Southwest Graduate School of Banking and board member of the Texas Tech School of Banking, has shown great leadership in his career and in his service to IBAT’s Leadership Division, recruiting more than twenty new members to the Division in the past year.
IBAT was also pleased to honor Five*Star Award winners: Granville Financial Group, John M. Floyd & Associates and BKD, LLP, during the 29th Annual Leadership Conference.
Full photos of this year’s events, including attendee photos with Daryl “Moose” Johnston will be available in next week’s edition of the Bottom Line. Save the date for the 30th Annual Leadership Conference, June 11-13, 2015 at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio.
Thank you to The Baker Group for providing an economic update available here to all conference attendees.
