About Bankers Online
BankersOnline.com is a joint effort by Glia Group, Inc. and the Bankers Information Network.
The principals behind Glia Group are familiar to many bankers.

She is nationally known as a banking speaker and author. Carin Eisenhauer spent more than a decade working with bankers on complex compliance matters.
