Successful Author and Business Professional Luis Lobo Returns to Belmont Abbey College

A member of the Belmont Abbey College Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame, Lobo has enjoyed a successful career in banking and higher education and now comes to the Abbey to share his insights on what it takes to accomplish your goals in your career and in life.

Mr. Luis G. Lobo is the Executive Vice President of BB&T Bank. A native of Costa Rica in Central America, he grew up in nearby Lincolnton, NC. Lobo graduated in 1983 from Belmont Abbey College with a bachelor degree and a double major in economics and business administration. He earned his MBA at Campbell University and also completed post-graduate study of banking at the Universities of Delaware and North Carolina–Chapel Hill. He serves on faculty of Stonier Graduate School of Banking at the University of Pennsylvania.

He has been featured on NPR’s Marketplace and in national and regional publications. Minority Business & Professional Network named Lobo one of the 50 Most Influential Minorities in Business in the nation in 2004. That same year, Lobo published his first book, It IS Your Attitude. In 2005, Belmont Abbey College inducted him into its inaugural Distinguished Alumni Wall of Fame. The Mid-Atlantic Hispanic Chamber of Commerce named him Banker of the Year in 2007 for his support of financial services to the multi-cultural community. The Hispanic Committee of Virginia awarded him the Hermes Award in 2007 for his community leadership in the Hispanic community in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution awarded Lobo their Americanism Medal – the highest honor conveyed upon a naturalized citizen.

Lobo credits his many accolades to the Abbey – his longtime source of encouragement and inspiration.

Please join us and give Mr. Lobo a big Abbey Homecoming welcome! No registration or tickets required.
