In late March, Broadway Bank announced that David Ladensohn has been named chairman of the board of directors, following the retirement of chairman and longtime Broadway Banker James D. Goudge. Ladensohn retired in 2006 as chairman and CEO of KLN Steel Products Co. and joined the Broadway Bank board in 2013. Prior to his 21-year tenure at KLN Steel Products, he worked for Bank of America in a number of capacities, including vice president and manager of the Hong Kong corporate banking office.
Ladensohn holds a BS degree in finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA degree in international business from Pepperdine University. He completed the owner/president management program at Harvard Business School and mediation training at Harvard Law School.
“David brings talent, expertise and energy to the board,” says David Bohne, CEO. “At the same time, we couldn’t be more thankful for Jimmy’s leadership and inspiration. His impact on this institution, the surrounding community and Texas banking in general is immeasurable.”
Goudge joined the bank in 1989 and was named president and CEO in 1998. He ascended to the role of chairman in 2001. Active in his community, he has held board positions for the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, United Way of San Antonio, San Antonio Economic Development Foundation, Southwest Research Institute, KLRN Public Television and UTSA Development. Additionally, he has served with the Texas Bankers Association, San Antonio branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, American Bankers Association government relations council and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas.
Established in 1941, Broadway Bank reports $3.6 billion in assets and operates 35 financial centers in San Antonio, Austin and the Texas Hill Country.
