Pre-conference Workshop

Jim DeLapa, CEO of Kiran Analytics Inc., will moderate “Driving Successful Branch Transformation Through Workforce Planning.”

When: March 31, 2014

Summary: Everyone agrees that the role of the branch is changing fast. With more than 80,000 branches in the US today, effectively and efficiently operating these branches is paramount and is only made more complicated by continuing channel migration. It is not as simple as closing branches or implementing a universal banker position. Some of the questions this workshop will answer include:

  •     How is channel migration impacting the types of people hired to work in the branches today?
  •     Can banks reduce staffing levels, while maintaining service levels and increasing profitability?
  •     In an era of such rapid change, is the annual exercise of capacity planning sufficient?
  •     What are leading banks doing to optimize their workforce?


  •     Randa Brandt, Vice President and Manager, Regional Resource Planning, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
  •     Jeffrey Hooper, Executive Vice President, Retail Banking Manager, SunTrust Banks, Inc.
  •     Mark Rendulic, Executive Vice President, Retail Banking, First Niagara Bank, N.A.

Business Executive Interaction Meetings

When: March 31 – April 2, 2014

Where: Meeting Room #4, across from the Potomac Ballroom where the General Sessions will be held.

Summary: Kiran executives and its Retail Banking Advisory Board members will be meeting with executives of retail banks to discuss their branch transformation insights related to strategic workforce planning, talent analytics, and tactical labor forecasting and scheduling. Kiran’s Retail Banking Advisory Board members are:

  •     Gene Kirby, former Chairman of CBA
