Posted by Mariam Ahmed

Overview Headquartered in Brentwood, TN, Bank Director is a dynamic, diverse and profitable privately-held media company. Since our start in 1991, we have focused on the informational, educational and training interests of C-level executives and members of the boards of financial institutions. Today, these key leaders trust our team and products to keep pace with their ever-changing landscape. We do so through Bank Director magazine,, exclusive conferences, research reports, a comprehensive membership program and various social media channels. Several years ago, we created a new brand, FinXTech, that focuses on connecting our audience of bank leaders with technology partners at the forefront of innovation.

Job Summary

As part of a collaborative team, the Fintech Editorial Manager will:
