“I feel a great sense of responsibility to be at my best because my performance impacts the lives of my clients as well as their employees and families,” says Adam Winder. “I think strategically to identify my clients’ challenges and lead cross-functional deal teams to design and deliver creative solutions. … I work hard to leverage the bank’s resources and my network to help my clients achieve their strategic and financial goals.” Winder recently completed the EMBA program at Georgetown University. “I strive to set a strong example in business and in life so that I can help others,” he says. “I am exceptionally passionate about helping less fortunate but motivated kids succeed and break the cycle of hardship in their family. I believe that people can control their own destiny and can accomplish anything if they have strong will and an open mind, with enough humility to seek out and learn from good mentors.”
