At the invitation of Marine Bank’s President & CEO Bill Penney and his leadership team, local business leaders attended an informative breakfast seminar presented by international leadership management expert James Cooke. “Europe in Crisis and the Effects on the USA” highlighted current European economic developments and their possible effects to the U.S. market and economy. The informative breakfast was held at the Quail Valley Club and concluded with a lively question and answer segment.
“At Marine Bank, we feel that being a true community bank is a distinction that must be earned,” said President & CEO Bill Penney. ““We strive to find new ways to be a community resource every day. In addition to being a source of capital for businesses wanting to grow and consumers seeking a mortgage, we want to provide helpful insights as well.”
This was the third such event hosted by Marine Bank and its mortgage lending team. In 2017, Tom Essaye of The Sevens Report presented “2018 Interest Rates and the Luxury Home Market” and, in 2016, “The Luxury Home Market and the Trump Administration’s Impact on the Residential Market” was delivered by Gary B. Smith of Fox Business News.
