Atlanta Partner Jim McAlpin was quoted Oct. 29 by the American Bankers Association Banking Journal regarding the lack of millennials in board director roles at most companies, including banks. However, more banks are recognizing this age gap and increasingly are looking to diversify their boards with younger members. McAlpin said it is critical for banks to reflect the changing demographics of their communities if they are going to remain competitive. “It’s the forward-thinking boards who are taking measured steps to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses and then make the changes needed to remain in touch as businesses change and grow around them,” he said.
