“Leading with Gratitude - The Intersection of Foresight, Hard Work, and Luck”

Brent Beardall will present a 105 year old bank went from a technological neophyte to an industry leading digital first bank. 

Brent Beardall's 20+ years at WaFd Bank and his efforts to make the bank a "digital first bank" will shape his presentation to Rotary members during this weekly meeting.

Prior to this he served as Chief Banking Officer where he was responsible for all client-facing activities of the bank. He was awarded the title of President & CEO in 2017, becoming only the sixth CEO in the bank’s 104-year history.

In 2018 WaFd undertook a bold initiative “Vision 2025” to transform into a “digital first bank,” with the vision of having a real time understanding of clients’ financial health, anticipating their needs, and helping them make better financial decisions. His simple ask of all employees is to “love what they do and make a difference.”

Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in America. Now due to Roger BelAir’s efforts, the game is being played with impressive results in prisons from coast to coast. Hear how a 60 Minutes segment on crime encouraged BelAir to bring the sport to incarcerated individuals and how national interest in the native-born sport is introducing pickleball to a whole new generation of players. 

Off the court, Roger is a financial expert who has been profiled in a cover story of Money magazine; an acclaimed author of financial books; and a keynoter at conventions.
