Building a Bank and a City

Hugh McColl and Andrea Smith from Bank of America

Staring out at the city of Charlotte from the window of the 60th floor of the Bank of America building, Hugh McColl calls it like he sees it. “The bank made all this happen.” The former Chairman and CEO of Bank of America is proud of his legacy — both in building the city and the bank — but the 84-year-old is also working toward the future. He’s teaming up with Andrea Smith, Bank of America's Chief Administrative Officer, to make sure the innovation culture he created not only survives — it thrives.
