South Florida Banking Institute started the new year by introducing several prominent leaders of the banking industry for the SFBI CEO Panel 2017. The event took place on January 18, 2017 at the Miami Airport Hilton’ and featured special guest speakers that included President and CEO of Sunstate Bank of Florida - Lloyd Devaux,
President and CEO of Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust - Angel Medina, President and CEO of Pacific National Bank - Carlos R. Fernandez-Guzman, and Executive Vice President of First National Bank of South Miami- Veronica B. Flores.
During the event, the speakers discussed leadership success and best practices. The night was enlightened by the leader’s experience in how to best lead and empower their organizations. Exercising good mentorship practices, such as believing and curating your team, will help maintain drive performance and growth within your organization. One of the critical points discussed was the importance of staying aligned with your core mission. These leaders inspired encouragement and passion through their personal experiences on their journey to leadership. Never feeling satisfied, staying current, and being the best person you can be are just small parts of becoming a great leader. Passion is contagious.
