'Leaders who feel comfortable being open about their sexual orientation are more productive and engaged'.
Bloomberg News reports that C1 Financial, based in St. Petersburg, Florida, priced its $44.7 million initial public offering this week. The firm was created in 2009 when Burgess, a former Morgan Stanley investment banker, and three other investors took over the Community Bank of Manatee, ultimately acquiring other lenders in the state.
'Leaders who feel comfortable being open about their sexual orientation are more productive and engaged, which directly impacts the success of their organizations,' Irene Dorner, CEO of HSBC USA, said in a statement. 'Sincere congratulations to Trevor on leading the way with this IPO.'
