With less than two months to go to the launch of Building Banking on Values,Â a new VoiceAmerica radio series I’m hosting that goes behind the scenes to tell the stories of the people, passion and positivity within the values-based banking and financing sector; I thought to introduce you to some of our guests.
Meet David Korslund: a Serious Banker Who Believes Banking Should Have a Seriously Social Conscience.Â
