Can Two Legacy Banks Become a Digital Banking Leader?

In late 2019, BB&T and SunTrust combined to become the 6th largest bank in the country, serving 10 million households. Looking at the strategic and financial benefits of the merger, the mission was to preserve the strong cultures of the legacy organizations, while using the combined scale and cost savings to build best of breed systems, processes and digital capabilities.

At the time of the merger, the question was whether two legacy banking organizations could reinvent themselves for the future of banking, making the foundational changes needed in culture, leadership focus, and innovation spirit ,while retaining what customers of both organizations had cherished from the past.

I am joined today by Scott Case, the CIO of Truist. In this episode, we discuss the status of this historic merger, the role technology and innovation has played, and the impact that COVID-19 has had on the intended results.
