Joshua Dodd, senior vice president and relationship manager in the Lehigh Valley Commercial Banking Division at Univest Bank and Trust Co., recently graduated from the 2017-18 PA Bankers Leadership Institute.
Through six two-day sessions over 18 months, the PA Bankers Leadership Institute utilizes a multi-dimensional leadership training model, which takes participants “behind the curtain” to examine the success that comes from a strong organizational culture and assess how it relates to performance, leadership, engagement and communication to achieve results. Participants are guided by banking leadership experts, including Dr. Linda Eagle, president and co-founder of Global Bankers Institute, and Dennis Budinich, senior vice president, chief culture officer at Investors Bank.
Dodd has served the financial services industry for more than 19 years. At Univest, Dodd is responsible for handling the lending needs of private companies, municipalities, and non-profit organizations in the Lehigh Valley. He completed undergraduate and graduate studies at Moravian College where he has since served as an adjunct professor of finance for its Masters in Business Administration discipline. Dodd currently serves as the Immediate-past President for the Risk Management Association’s East Central PA Chapter and Southern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce, Chair of Moravian College’s Leadership Council and Treasurer of the Allentown School District Foundation.
“The Pennsylvania Bankers Association is proud to continually offer the PA Bankers Leadership Institute,” said Duncan Campbell, PA Bankers’ president & CEO. “Through its unique model, the program develops leaders who will sustain, maintain and grow Pennsylvania’s banking industry, which is vital to the economic future of the commonwealth.”
