Bank Systems & Technology has formed a new Reader Advisory Board. The Board is a select group of 11 senior bank executives who will provide feedback and guidance to Bank Systems & Technology's editorial team, sharing their wisdom as multi-decade industry practitioners. As Bank Systems & Technology grows and expands its multimedia brand further into online news, in-depth reports, digital issues, online and in-person events alongside a print publication that's been published since 1964, these bankers will advise the editors on the topics they cover and provide insights on the market trends and developments that are shaping the financial services industry.
"The new Reader Advisory Board grew out of the strong relationships the Bank Systems & Technology's editorial team has developed with some of the most effective and influential executives in the banking industry," according to Kathy Burger, Editorial Director, Bank Systems & Technology. "These relationships also have contributed to the success of our annual Elite 8 Special Report on the leading CIOs in banking, as well as Bank Systems & Technology's Executive Summit networking event, now going into its sixth year."
