This month we continue our “Conversations about Banking” series. The series will consist of video conversations with leaders and influencers in the banking industry about topics of current interest. We hope you will enjoy and find benefit in this new aspect of BankBCLP.

In this second installment of our new “Conversations about Banking” series Banking group partner Jim McAlpin speaks with Bill Easterlin, CEO and President of Queensborough National Bank & Trust Co. Bill is the fourth generation leader of a $1.5 billion family owned bank in eastern Georgia.

In the conversation Bill and Jim discuss the challenges and rewards of a family owned bank. Bill also shares his recommendations for community bankers in achieving enhanced diversity throughout an institution, including the board. This is an entertaining and information conversation sprinkled with good stories.
