Exchange Forum with Tony Moncupa

East West Bank President Tony Moncupa joins Anvil Business Club's roster of speakers for its monthly exchange forum for 2017 last March 22. A single number such as the interest rate can tell about the growth confidence of a country, both short and long term, the career banker of 31 years explained. An avid reader - he is well versed with prominent socialists such as Mao Ze Dong and compares more successful communist economies that have adopted free market principles such as China and Vietnam versus those in Eastern Europe. Tony is credited with growing East West Bank into more than 400 branches aggressively in the last 5 years, a size that is necessary for the bank's business model: scale. He balanced short and long term growth that will unlock bigger growth in the future. His success beliefs include starting with one's personal values of hard work. An excellent reminder for everyone who attended Anvil Business Club's 3rd Exchange forum for 2017
