RBC Wealth Management-U.S. CEO joins an elite group of thought leaders

MINNEAPOLIS (July 23, 2013) – RBC Wealth Management-U.S CEO John G. Taft premiered as a LinkedIn® Influencer on the popular social networking website. Taft joins an elite group of approximately 250 top professionals who regularly share their insights with the more than 225 million LinkedIn members.

Taft’s first commentary appeared Monday providing his perspective on who may replace Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. In his blog titled “The Next Fed Chairman: Navigating Between Scylla and Charybdis,” John explains that “who the next Chair will be matters far less than what is his or her policy of how” and goes on to describe the issues and options facing whoever fills the role. As an Influencer, John will be contributing original content on a variety of topics from financial and economic concerns to leadership and stewardship.

Taft established a voice in the industry with the 2012 publication of his book “Stewardship: Lessons Learned from the Lost Culture of Wall Street.” This critically-acclaimed book looks at the 2008 financial crisis and Taft’s conviction that service and stewardship can be an answer to minimizing future financial crises and societal problems.

Taft’s message has been heard across the U.S. through industry presentations and commentary in major media including CNBC, Bloomberg News, CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, Wall Street Journal and Barron’s.
