In the world of finance, “having skin in the game” means that a player has put his own assets at risk to make a deal produce a profit. What assets does Vermont bring to the economic table? Bruce Lisman has some powerful ideas to share about how his native state can become an economic powerhouse.
After a long and sparkling career in international finance, native Vermonter Bruce Lisman retired in 2009 as Chairman of the JP Morgan Chase Global Equity Division.
He has served as a Director on the boards of Vermont’s National Life Group, Merchant Bancshares, the Shelburne Museum, American Forests, CVPS, and Pace University. He is a graduate of the University of Vermont and has served as Chair of the University’s Board of Trustees.
“If there’s one Vermonter of distinction, ability and vision that Vermonters ought to listen to in these trying economic times, it should be Bruce Lisman,” said EAI VP John McClaughry. “Bruce understands economics and wealth creation. He urgently wants his native state to rise to the top of successful states, and has sound ideas for making that happen.”
