The meeting aims to provide information and an exchange of ideas about the challenges and possibilities confronting the leaders and management of community banks.

John Holt is the Chief Executive Officer and President of Dallas-based NexBank Capital, Inc. A prominent leader in the Dallas business community, he participated in a panel discussion at the conference. The topic of the Bankers Panel forum that he and other panelists discussed was “Reinventing Community Banking: Perspectives on Competing by Innovation.” The panel met on November 7, 2016.
