Professionals from Ardmore Banking Advisors were in the spotlight during the Risk Management Association's (RMA) Annual Conference, as both Lou Dunham and Peter Cherpack presented well-attended sessions during the event in Washington, DC earlier this month.
Mr. Dunham, Ardmore's Senior VP & Senior Director of Credit Risk Consulting, had a standing room-only audience as he moderated the conference's Chief Credit Officer panel, featuring Michael Nassy of FVCBank, Bill Harrod of First Financial Bank and Daniel Eilert of INTRUST Bank.
The panel's discussion ranged from topics such as the balance between risk and growth, trends in portfolio management, and adhering to the bank's risk appetite structure.
Mr. Cherpack, Ardmore's Executive VP and Senior Director of Credit Technology, presented "CECL Implementation for Community Banks". The presentation distilled information from recent regulatory articles and webinars to try and make the expectations for community banks clearer as their institutions prepare for the CECL deadline, and gave some advice on where they should be focusing their efforts now so they are ready when the new rules go into place.
