SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, February 13, 2013 — Broadway Bank announces the appointment of David A. Ladensohn to the bank’s Board of Directors. Ladensohn is the principal of Plowshare Mediation, LLC of San Antonio, which specializes in conflict prevention and resolution in complex family businesses, and inter-generational wealth transfer.

“David’s talent and experience bring a two-fold advantage and benefit to the board,” said Jim Goudge, chairman and CEO of Broadway Bank. “His current role in family business mediation offers greater insight to our new strategic initiative — The Family Business Resource Center — where family businesses can connect, share ideas, find solutions to common problems and access information on critical issues. In addition, his business and banking acumen will prove useful in other areas of our operations, such as business banking and wealth management.”

Ladensohn retired in 2006 as chairman and CEO of KLN Steel Products Company, a third-generation San Antonio business, which designs, manufactures and markets furniture nationally for government facilities and colleges. Prior to his 21 years with KLN, Ladensohn held management positions at Bank of America’s offices in the U.S. and overseas.

A native of San Antonio, Ladensohn volunteers at the Bexar County Dispute Resolution Center and chairs the investment committee of the San Antonio Area Foundation. He also serves as a board member of C&S Wholesale Grocers of Keene in New Hampshire, Broadway Bancshares of San Antonio, and Texas Association of Mediators.

Ladensohn holds a Bachelor of Science in Finance from Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and a Masters of Business Administration in International Business from Pepperdine University. He completed the Program of Instructions for Lawyers in Mediation at Harvard Law School and the Owner / President Manager program at Harvard Business School.
