Executive Recruiting at Bank of the West
Over the last 145 years, Bank of the West has built itself into one of the nation’s largest banks, with offices in 23 states. How does one make sure that such a venerable and established reputation is maintained, while at the same time experimenting, creating and building an innovative executive recruiting function to help take the business to the next level? Head of Executive Recruiting, Lisa Free, along with SVP and Head of Recruiting, Maranda Baird, will share with us their function’s model and plans for corporate executive recruiting at Bank of the West – and hopefully give us some tips on how they achieved some stellar diversity results along the way.

2:00 pm Teamable: Not Just a Referral Platform, But an Executive Network Too?
Meruzhan Danielyan, Co-Founder and CEO of Teamable, and his team have created an employee referral platform that searches for and identifies relevant candidates and helps employees make warm introductions. That’s great – but how about when that platform starts to become an invitation-only, exclusive executive network? It could help companies find a higher quality of leadership talent faster and more effectively, and help exec candidates find the right environment in which to do their best work.
