Sageworks’ nationwide ALLL discussion series
On Thursday, May 2nd, Sageworks hosted a dinner and discussion event at the Oceanaire Seafood Room in Miami, Florida. David Brown, founding partner at RMPI Consulting and Sageworks consultants discussed how to justify change, unlock capital and increase earnings in the allowance for loan and lease losses with a room full of Florida bank executives.
Last week’s event is the third in a series of banking industry events that make up the 2013 Sageworks Discussion Series on the Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses.
