LANB is scheduled to host a private gathering of the QNM Executive Committee at its Griffin Street location in Santa Fe Wednesday.
The meeting will include a meet and greet for LANB’s leadership team and QNM executives with Phil Marineau, former president and CEO of Levi Strauss & Co. and current Chairman of the Board of Shutterfly Inc. Marineau is scheduled to be a keynote speaker at QNM’s annual Learning Summit held each spring in Albuquerque.
As the largest independent community bank in New Mexico, with six offices, $1.6 billion in assets and 330 employees, Los Alamos National Bank (LANB) knows the importance of continuous improvement. As part of this effort, LANB has fostered a strong relationship with Quality New Mexico (QNM) and has been a member since its conception nearly two decades ago.
QNM, through state of the art tools, knowledge, learning experiences and best practices, provides invaluable education and feedback to organizations in NM. QNM is the only official NM resource that evaluates an organization’s performance and publicly recognizes those organizations that excel.
LANB was the first NM company to win the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and is still the only bank to have received the award. Steve Wells, LANB President, said that being a member of QNM has certainly played a significant role in LANB’s achievements.
“As our global economy and nation emerge from a significant economic downturn, those companies who chose not only to survive, but to thrive, will be those companies capable of continuous improvement,” Wells said. “That’s where partnering with Quality New Mexico pays dividends.”
