Some Things Old, Some Things New: John Beran, EVP, Comerica Bank (Dallas)
I've had several new areas of focus and priority over the past year, as well as some ongoing efforts. One new area of focus is interpreting the impact of the financial regulatory reform legislation that recently passed.
I'm also guiding the strategy of several key initiatives. The first is social networking - determining how Comerica will play in that arena. The second is developing a strategy around enterprise payments architecture, an integrated road map to combine all of our operational customer information systems and databases with our sales systems and databases. Finally, we're rolling out our employee intranet. We also have been focusing on managing expenses and guiding strategy and tactics around security.
