Acting Governor Kim Guadagno Kicks Off 4th Annual Economic Leadership Forum


New Jersey Bankers Association Welcomes Hundreds of Banking Industry Leaders to Somerset

Trenton, NJ – Recognizing the contributions of New Jersey’s financial services industry, Acting Governor Kim Guadagno today addressed the 4th Annual Economic Leadership Forum hosted by New Jersey Bankers Association (NJBankers).

“When we came into office, we found a system that strangled business innovation and growth with red tape,” said Acting Governor Guadagno. “Changing our approach to make it more efficient and cost-effective for your companies to do business here is a personal goal of mine.  I’m proud of the efforts we have made to make the regulatory environment more attractive without lessening proper oversight or transparency, but more remains to be done.”

NJBankers has been an advocate for the New Jersey banking industry for more than 109 years and provides members with services and support in public and media relations, education and employee health insurance benefit programs and assistance in meeting Community Reinvestment Act regulations.  Today, its membership consists of 115 banking institutions and more than 238 associate member firms.

“This is our 4th Annual Economic Leadership Forum and we hosted nearly 500 leaders from banking and business that discussed many of the key issues affecting New Jersey’s economy,” said John E. McWeeney, Jr., President & CEO of NJBankers.  “We’re very excited to have Acting Governor Guadagno join us and add her perspective to this important dialogue.”
