Ask Elizabeth Snyder what her preferred form of transportation is, and she’d be hard-pressed to decide between a horse and her vintage Volkswagen convertible Bug. A second-generation rider, Elizabeth today prefers trail riding on American Saddlebreds, one of the first domestic horses bred specifically to help Kentucky doctors ride to patient homes. Similar to how a successful rider needs be attuned to the horse’s experience, effective risk leaders use customers’ perspectives to proactively manage risk.
A 30-plus-year banking veteran who started on the front line of a community bank and worked her way up to a senior risk management role with a major national bank, Elizabeth arrives at Spinnaker with a passion and thorough understanding of business risks and the compliance process. As a senior director in our Risk Management and Regulatory Compliance practice, she applies her deep industry experience to help clients develop efficient operations, leveraging her industry insights to design and implement effective risk programs and internal controls.
Throughout her career, Elizabeth has been active in both state and national banking organizations, including serving 15-plus years in compliance committee roles with the American Bankers Association. Those affiliations have put her on the forefront in identifying risk trends, not to mention honing her talent for innovative and stringent solutions to complex risk problems. Elizabeth has nurtured a broad professional network of individuals who share her leading-edge insights on regulatory requirements, while providing access to additional expertise, best practices and the latest tactics.
