SYRACUSE, NY – CenterState CEO announces that Tony Bond, executive vice president and chief innovation officer of Great Place to Work, will deliver the keynote address at its 2019 Annual Meeting, April 24, noon, at the Oncenter in Syracuse. The luncheon is the region’s largest annual gathering of business and community leaders.

In his role at Great Place to Work, Bond shapes the organization’s culture transformation work, and has served as a trusted adviser for some of the most successful global organizations, including the National Basketball Association, AT&T, Daimler, Coca-Cola, Indeed, Whole Foods, Dow Chemicals and American Express.

“Our research has long demonstrated that when we are able to build winning workplace cultures, it’s better for business, better for people and better for the world,” said Bond. “I look forward to being a part of the conversation on how we can drive innovation and economic growth through highly engaged employees.”

Bond’s focus is particularly relevant as the region’s businesses prioritize the need to attract and retain talent, and cultivate more inclusive and innovative workplaces. The ability of businesses to remain agile, embrace change and evolve their workplace culture to not only impact their bottom line, but to serve a broader population of those seeking opportunity, serves as a blueprint for driving greater regional prosperity.

“We are excited to welcome Tony to Syracuse as we examine how businesses and communities can evolve to create transformational change,” said Rob Simpson, president, CenterState CEO. “We challenge the business community to lead with intention to drive innovation. When we maximize business success, and human potential at all levels, we can achieve greater economic prosperity for our region.”
