There is a bank and there is a bank. IDB (Israel Discount Bank), with headquarters in New York City and branches in Florida and California, sees itself as an unusual bank. Attesting to this were the hundreds of their valuable customers and friends who, on a splendorous Californian sunny late afternoon, gathered at the outdoor venue of the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel, in Beverly Hills, California. The occasion was the IDB Annual Appreciation Diner to simply munch, drink, meet, greet, network and celebrate together. There were no stereotypical speeches; only two short welcome pleasantries by Kiyoun Kim, Executive Vice President, Regional Manager for California and Uri Levin IDB CEO and president.
The rest, you guessed well, it really was a fun get together. All guests were able to taste from the elaborated variety of great food, enjoy lovely background music and bask in the relaxed atmosphere. It was a very pleasant gathering of very nice people. Many thanks to the bank and those who organized this event.
So why did a bank hold such an event?
