Carla McCall & Bob Rivers: FEI-Boston Fireside Chat

AAFCPAs Managing Partner Carla McCall, CPA, CGMA will host FEI Boston’s “A Closer Look” featuring Bob Rivers, CEO of Eastern Bank. Bob has been a long-time, widely respected advocate in the Boston business community on behalf of social justice and sustainability causes and an instrumental force in taking America’s oldest and largest mutual savings bank public.

“AAFCPAs hosted Bob for a dialogue on Diversity & Inclusion back in 2015 at one of our employee town halls,” said Carla McCall. “As a firm, we remain committed to engaging in meaningful action to eradicate racial injustice and work for change, and I am honored to host this passionate and visionary leader at FEI-Boston’s upcoming fireside chat.”

Bob will share his thoughts on diversity, inclusivity, and share insight on the Bank’s recent IPO.

“River’s motto ‘The right thing to do is also the smart thing to do’ is proven,” adds Carla. “There’s substantial evidence that diversity enhances a company’s performance. I challenge all companies to do their very best.”
