Lon Langston created Engaged Banker eXperience for you.

Lon has been studying and practically applying management and leadership since college. In 2010, he began to study behavioral economics. Over time, that expanded to all behavioral science, including the neurology and physiology that are inevitably linked.

Lon excelled in management and leadership positions at several companies and non-profits. In 2004, he started his own business.

From an idea in his head, with no customers, no employees, and no facilities or equipment, Lon built a successful company, with $21 million in revenue, 64 employees, 80,000 square feet of cold storage and production, which sourced, packed, sold, and shipped 1.2 million pounds of fresh produce every week, in the southeastern United States and Caribbean. Lon successfully sold his produce company, in its eleventh year.

Lon left the produce industry to make a larger positive impact, by using the best behavioral science (based on large, longitudinal data sets, randomized controlled trials, peer review, and replication) to give people the best information and tools to pursue their potential. He did this through executive coaching, executive group facilitation, and corporate training, and as Executive in Residence at Clayton State University’s College of Business. In 2016, Lon became Culture Curator for Heritage Bank and, subsequently, Chief People Officer for Heritage Southeast Bank (a $1.7 billion bank in metro Atlanta) . 

In 2020, Lon founded Engaged Banker eXperience to deliver a unique set of evidence-based data, tools, and ways of thinking, molded to community banking and designed to help bankers thrive.
