In this edition, CEO Brad Roden answers some rapid-fire questions from our host, Marketing Director Hannah Willis. Here’s what we learn:

  • Brad has been with NBC for 15 years.
  • His career history is NOT boring, Hannah. 
  • He comes from the grocery industry. Like, he owned grocery stores. This gave him the crucial ability to see things from the customer’s viewpoint first.
  • The weirdest thing he has on his desk is a week-old banana that we all know he’s never gonna eat now.
  • He’s a hockey fan, as well as a television fan … so long as the television is broadcasting hockey. 
  • He also loves dining out at any of the Blackwoods family of restaurants. Especially if there’s hockey on the televisions.
  • His favorite music genre is news, followed by country, and he’s a twice-a-day brusher. Though he might stretch to three if he’s just eaten a week-old banana.
  • He decided when he joined NBC in 2008 that he wanted to someday run the bank. Talk about making more possible!
  • He’s charged with the strategic direction of the bank and its long-term strategy.
  • He’s most proud of the investments the bank makes in the community, such as NBC’s new volunteer time off (VTO) program, where every full-time associate gets 12 hours each year of paid time off to volunteer for whatever local cause they’re passionate about.
