Woman bank president to speak at Aug. 9 chamber luncheon

Written by 

Suzanne DeFerie, CEO and president of Asheville Savings Bank, will be the guest speaker at the Haywood County Chamber of Commerce’s Women in Business luncheon from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. on Aug. 9 at the Gateway Club.

DeFerie was born, raised and educated in Western North Carolina, and will share her journey as she entered banking and became the first female CEO of a bank in WNC. Under her leadership, the bank converted from a mutual savings bank to a public stock savings bank last October. DeFerie was the first CEO from the Asheville area to ring the NASDAQ Stock Market Closing Bell in New York City.

She will speak about women in leadership, effective networking, and steps to success.
