Congratulations to Debbie Scanlon, CPA, partner at BKD, LLP in Houston for receiving IBAT’s 2017 Excellence in Leadership Award. In case you somehow don’t know her, Scanlon is a member of the BKD National Financial Services Group and leads the Houston financial services practice. It’s safe to say she’s no stranger to Texas community banking.
With more than 25 years of experience providing audit and consulting services to a variety of financial institutions and companies, Scanlon has become one of commercial banking’s most respected advisers. She has served as a sponsor and supporter of IBAT in many ways, including always attending the Congressional Visit, Community Banking Day at the Capitol, strategic planning meetings and many other events every year, plus sponsoring the Best of Community Banking Awards. We honored her with the IBAT President’s Award in 2013, and she was a finalist for the Houston Business Journal’s 2016 Women Who Mean Business.
“Debbie is a leader among leaders and inspires others to contribute like she does. People want to work with her and if you need something, she is there without hesitation,” IBAT President and CEO Chris Williston said. “We are thrilled to call her one of our own and recognize her with this prestigious award,” he added.
