Sandy Spring Bank Appoints Chief Risk Officer

Olney, MD, July 12, 2018 — Sandy Spring Bank (NASDAQ: SASR) announced today that Kevin Slane has joined the company as Executive Vice President and Chief Risk Officer. This is a newly created position at the bank and an addition to the bank’s executive management team. Slane will lead the continued development of the bank’s risk management program and will focus on safely enabling business strategies to drive Sandy Spring Bank’s long-term success.

“As we continue to expand our presence throughout the region, we want to ensure that we are well positioned to seize new opportunities to grow and better serve our clients. In order to do so, we must manage risk in a way that aligns with our vision and culture,” said Daniel J. Schrider, President and CEO of Sandy Spring Bank. “This is a strategic and proactive investment in our risk management structure, and I look forward to working with Kevin to further strengthen this critical capability.”

With more than 30 years of experience, Slane is an accomplished financial services executive. He joins Sandy Spring Bank from Hancock Whitney Bank in the Gulf South where he was responsible for enterprise risk management and operational risk. Prior to that position, Slane was the corporate risk director for First Horizon Corporation in Memphis, TN.

“Sandy Spring Bank is a purpose driven and values based organization that is truly client and community focused. It is what differentiates our company and what attracted me to join the bank,” said Slane. “I am excited to be a part of the team and to further develop a risk management program that will enable growth and build on the bank’s 150 year legacy of serving individuals, families and businesses across this region.”

Earlier this year Sandy Spring Bank completed the acquisition of WashingtonFirst Bank, making it the largest, locally-headquartered community bank in the Greater Washington Region. This year also marks the bank’s 150th anniversary. In recognition of this milestone, the bank officially launched the Sandy Spring Bank Foundation. “This is an exciting and pivotal time for us, so it is fitting that we continue to build on this positive momentum and welcome Kevin to the Sandy Spring Bank family,” concluded Schrider.

Sandy Spring Bancorp, Inc., headquartered in Olney, Maryland, is the holding company for Sandy Spring Bank. Independent and community-oriented, Sandy Spring Bank offers a broad range of commercial banking, retail banking, mortgage and trust services throughout central Maryland, Northern Virginia, and the greater Washington, D.C. market.

Former Chief Marketing & Communications Officer at Accenture, Taylor Brings Brand Vision and Digital-First Expertise to Global Executive Search and Leadership Consulting Association.

The Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants (AESC) has appointed Roxanne Taylor, formerly chief marketing & communications officer at Accenture, to its board as an independent director. The AESC Global Board of Directors combines elected representatives from each of AESC’s three Regional Councils: Americas; Asia Pacific and Middle East; Europe and Africa, with now two independent directors. Taylor is only the second independent director appointed to the AESC Board in the association’s nearly 60-year history, after the appointment of Stefan Spang of McKinsey & Company in 2017.

Based in New York, Taylor spent the past 23 years at Accenture, serving as the company’s chief marketing & communications officer for more than 10 years. She was instrumental in shaping Accenture as a global, market-leading brand, and more recently, actualizing the company’s digital-first and innovation-led strategy. Taylor’s passion for technology and her ability to drive innovation in brand-building led to her success in developing new digital platforms at Accenture, where she led a global team of more than 1,000 marketing and communications professionals and served as a member of Accenture’s Global Management Committee.

Paul Benson, AESC Board Chair and Regional Market Leader, Europe Middle East & Africa, Global Industrial Market at Korn Ferry, commented, “Roxanne’s deep expertise in global marketing and branding, Professional Services, as well as digital innovation will provide a critical perspective to the AESC Board as we continue to focus on the digital transformations of both the organizations we serve and our own profession.”

Prior to joining Accenture in 1995, Taylor held business, investor relations and marketing roles for Reuters, Citicorp, Credit Suisse and the Deak-Perera Group. Named as one of Forbes’ “World’s Most Influential CMOs,” she is a member of the Marketing 50, Arthur W. Page Society, The Committee of 200 and Women’s Forum of New York. She previously served on the board of the Ad Council and currently serves on the Business Committee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Taylor stated: “I’m delighted to join the board for the association of the executive search and leadership consulting profession which has such an important impact on organizations worldwide. As the already rapid rate of change continues to accelerate due to technological advancements—agility, foresight and entrepreneurial thinking will guide tomorrow’s most successful businesses. I look forward to helping shape the future course and strategy of AESC—in turn serving its global members and the clients they serve with the insights I have gleaned over the course of my career at Accenture and beyond.”

Taylor’s appointment follows a search process managed by AESC’s Nominating and Governance committee, chaired by Krista Walochik, AESC Board Chair Emeritus and Chair at executive search and leadership advisory firm Talengo/The Global Community for Leaders (TGCL), headquartered in Madrid. The AESC Board of Directors ensures that AESC membership represents the highest quality standard in the executive search and leadership consulting profession globally. “Roxanne will bring an integral outside perspective to the board as we navigate new opportunities in an era of rapid business transformation and innovation,” stated Walochik.
