Podcast: Bankers You’d Like to Spend a Third of Your Life With

You spend a third of your life at work, says Jeremy Callais. “You can teach someone how to do banking. We hire people who we want to spend a third of our lives with. We tend to think that the customers like to bank with those people too.”

On the latest episode of the ABA Banking Journal Podcast — sponsored by OneTrust Vendorpedia — Callais, president of M C Bank in Morgan City, Louisiana, and a member of ABA’s Community Bankers Council, talks about his bank’s approach to hiring, leadership development and succession planning — including his own progression through the ranks and the bank’s conscious recruitment of younger personnel, including a CFO and two board members in their 20s.

Callais also provides an update from his work on ABA’s Core Platforms Committee and the principles for strong bank-core relationships, and he discusses how M C Bank is positioning itself for success in the competitive South Louisiana market.
