Maybe we should look at today’s Millennials in a new light.

Here’s a link to an ABA Banking Journal podcast depicting nine young bankers who changed America. In this episode, you’ll hear about:

· How 27-year-old Alexander Hamilton founded the nation’s first commercial bank
· The 32-year-olds who founded America’s first savings banks
· Maggie Walker, the daughter of a freed slave who became the first woman to open a U.S. bank
· The Tennessee community bank technologist who won the race to launch home computer banking
· The junior bank officer who put together what would become the Visa network
· How a young management consultant developed data-driven ways to expand access to credit cards

Let's not underestimate the ingenuity and creativity of the young people in our industry!
