Dear Members and Guests:


In a return engagement by true popular demand, Mr. William Rhodes will be our featured guest speaker at the inaugural dinner event. No one is better able to predict the future as President-elect Trump assumes office.


Mr. Rhodes is a member of the Group of Thirty chaired by Paul Volcker, ex-chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve.

Bill Rhodes is also a senior advisor for Citi, having stepped back from full time responsibilities after more than 53 years with the institution. He most recently served as senior vice chairman and senior international officer of Citigroup and Citibank.

Mr. Rhodes gained a reputation for international financial diplomacy in the 1980s and 1990s as a result of his leadership in helping manage the external-debt crisis that involved developing nations and their creditors worldwide. He headed the advisory committees of international banks that negotiated debt-restructuring agreements for Argentina, Brazil, Jamaica, Mexico, Peru, and Uruguay. He also chaired the international bank group that negotiated the extension of short-term debt of the Korean banking system in 1997-'98, and he acted as worldwide coordinator to help implement the maintenance of trade and inter-bank lines by foreign commercial banks to Brazil in early 1999. He has since served as a trusted advisor to governments, financial officials, and corporations worldwide.

In 2011, Rhodes published Banker to the World: Leadership Lessons from the Front Lines of Global Finance. Paul Volcker wrote the preface to this book, which was endorsed by Henry Kissinger, among others. Among his numerous board and leadership positions, Rhodes is vice chairman of the National Committee on US-China Relations, and Trustee of the Asia Society and of the Economic Club of New York. He is chairman emeritus of the Council of the Americas & Americas Society & the US Korea Business Council.

He is a life trustee of New York-Presbyterian and a director of many for-profit and non-for-profit organizations.

We are honored to have Bill Rhodes, recipient of enumerable decorations and honors as our first speaker in the 2016-2017 season.
