On Friday, February 24, 2017, Jonathan sat down with our colleague, Kevin Strachan, to discuss ideas for banks to highlight community involvement in their shareholder meetings. As mentioned during the podcast, I had the pleasure of judging the next generation of transactional lawyers at a LawMeets competition hosted by Emory Law School, but I enjoyed consuming this podcast as a listener.
Before diving into shareholder engagement, Jonathan and Kevin also comment briefly on the leaked Hensarling memo on version 2.0 of the Choice Act, and some of the “interesting” banking ideas expressed by Bruce Cahan, adjunct professor at Stanford University, on a recent American Banker podcast episode.
On this episode of The Bank Account, Jonathan and Kevin touch on some excellent examples of shareholder engagement, including:
- Synovus (Personal aside – Synovus also produced the best Super Bowl LI commercial.)
- Morris Bank
- Nicolet National Bank
