CHRISTOPHER OLSEN TO SPEAK AT VBA/VACB BANK DIRECTORS' SYMPOSIUM

Christopher Olsen will speak at The Bank Directors' Symposium, sponsored by the Virginia Bankers Association and the Virginia Association of Community Banks (VACB). The two-day event will be held at The Inn at Virginia Tech (Southwest) on April 10th and The Westin Richmond (Central) on April 11th, 2019.

The Bank Directors’ Symposium provides bank board members with current data, thought-provoking industry trends and networking opportunities with other directors and regulators. The program is designed to benefit both new directors and seasoned veterans on the Board.

Mr. Olsen will deliver a presentation titled, Creating Value: Identifying the Key Variables that Truly Drive the Value of your Bank . Without question, maximizing long-term shareholder value is - and should be - a central tenet of every bank’s strategic planning, whether through long-term organic initiatives, through M&A, or through some combination of both. That said, less attention is paid to how ‘value’ is actually defined and measured and, by extension, to what key variables have the most profound effect on driving a bank’s value. This session will de-construct a bank’s value drivers, highlight certain characteristics shared by highly-valued banks, and, ultimately, reveal the key variables that are most closely correlated with the value of a bank.
