20 Apr Chairman of Seagate Completes Training for Board of Gulf Coast Business Bank
Seagate Development Group’s Chairman of the Board, Bill Price, recently participated in specialized training sessions presented to the Board of Directors in preparation of the opening of the upcoming Gulf Coast Business Bank. This comes just three months after accepting the financial institution’s invitation to join the Board.
Opening soon at the corner of Metro Parkway and Crystal Drive in Fort Myers, Gulf Coast Business Bank will be the first locally owned bank to open in the last 12 years to focus on the needs of Southwest Florida businesses and residents.
During training, Board members learned details about bank operations and the full particulars of its financial workings – details necessary for them to better form and deliver valuable input and insights to guide the bank’s strategies. Information gathered at these sessions add to Bill’s 40-plus years of experience in commercial and residential development as well as his principled business practices that built Seagate and companies before it.
“Knowledge is power, and the knowledge that I’ve acquired during this training will allow me to better fulfill my duties, understand the business and help the bank function to its fullest extent,” Bill said. “I look forward to contributing to what will be a great organization that will do a lot of good for the people and businesses of Southwest Florida – a region that means so much to me.”
