Barry School of Business hosts its 18th Annual Fall Executive Leadership Forum featuring Forbes 30 under 30 winner Mark Kilpatrick

On Monday November 4, 2019, Barry University’s D. Inez Andreas School of Business will host its 18th annual fall Distinguished Speakers Series: Executive Leadership Forum (ELF) featuring Mark Kilpatrick.

Kilpatrick is the co-founder of FinTech company, Urban FT, Group, Inc. It is one of the most progressive and successful of its type in the financial services industry. He is the lynchpin of Urban FT, fueling its mission to empower small to mid-sized financial institutions with service, functionality, and user experience design that competes with or transcends those offered by larger institutions.

A small town kid at heart, Kilpatrick is the mainspring of Urban FT’s efforts to empower the underdog in financial services. The company has amassed a client portfolio which includes 10% of the U.S.-based financial institutions that have $20B or below in assets.

Originally trained in graphic design at Barry University, Kilpatrick enriches Urban FT’s product development as its Chief Product Officer through inspiring images, narratives, and interfaces. His brainchild, Urban FT’s Digital Banking Platform, provides financial institutions with the ability to better service their customers and improve their bottom line.

Community service and giving back are Kilpatrick’s core values, both personally and professionally. Since graduation, he has demonstrated support for Barry through generous annual giving and in his role as co-president of the NYC Alumni Chapter. In addition, Kilpatrick established a pick-up soccer league for adults, coordinated charity soccer tournaments, and engaged with Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths program. He is an active member of the Young Entrepreneurs Club (YEC), American Marketing Association (AMA), and the Federal Reserve System’s Faster Payments Task Force.

The primary purpose of ELF is to enhance the learning experience of students. Guests are invited to participate in a business dialogue, communicating challenges and triumphs to students and the community. The aim of this dialogue is to assist students in recognizing the challenges of implementation and learning the different paths to take as a leader from seasoned executives.
