Paragon Hosts Symposium on the State of the Banking Industry


Paragon recognizes that the current banking climate is uncertain and possibly concerning to consumers and stockholders alike. In order to ease some of the panic and fear that has gripped the banking industry, Paragon hosted The State of Banking Symposium to address concerns head on.

Customers, shareholders, and the general public were invited to a breakfast meeting on August 7 at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens to hear from a panel of hand-picked financial experts. Panelists included Don Berge, President of MarketGraphics Research Group; Jim Reber, President of ICBA Securities (Independent Community Bankers of America); Doug Southard, Founder of Southard Financial; and Philip Smith, President of Gerrish McCreary Smith. Paragon President and CEO Robert Shaw moderated with opening comments, followed by each panelist addressing the industry situation from their expertise; then the panel fielded questions from audience members. Paragon hopes to have made a positive impact on the Memphis banking community by leading this event.
