ShoreBank founder Urges Action From 'Citizen Leaders'
Business leaders used to be considered successful if they produced the slickest gadget, provided the best services or made their shareholders wealthy. "Business leaders are also expected to be citizen leaders," Grzywinski told an audience of students, academics and practitioners at the James L. Allen Center. They are expected to use the many resources at their fingertips to take on humanity's toughest problems. The experiment turned out to change lives for the better. Today, the bank serves disinvested urban and rural communities in five states.
