Octagonal is proud to welcome Lynn Stetson to the Advisory team.
Lynn is an accomplished risk executive with over three decades of experience in the highest levels of banking and financial management.
Over his 29 years with Bank of America, Lynn held multiple risk executive roles; he was risk manager for the Bank’s international leveraged finance business and assumed Chief Credit Officer and Chief Risk Officer roles for the Bank’s international business in London as the 2008 credit crisis unfolded. Upon repatriation, he was tasked with strengthening the Bank’s global risk policy and governance. He transitioned to GE Capital when their own regulatory scrutiny led to his recruitment as an experienced and balanced outsider skilled in communicating at Board level. He led GE’s Global Credit and Investment Risk Review team, presenting assessments to the Board Risk Committee, GE Capital Board, business and risk executives, and regulators.
Currently, he is co‐authoring a book for young entrepreneurs. Known as a strong collaborator with high integrity and a willingness to lead teams by example, Lynn is an approachable “open door” leader. He recently was a visiting adjunct professor at a University of Illinois Masters capstone class and co‐presented an e‐Mentoring session to the Association of Talent Professionals.
Lynn takes pride in his strong family and his role as a community leader. He particularly likes working with youth, has coached many sports, and has challenged students to build experiments for the Science Olympiad. As part of his own children’s engagement, he was a director of area Wilderness Scouts and Princesses organizations. Lynn also headed his School Board’s expense management committee, was treasurer of his church, and a member of the Sunny Ridge Family Center Adoptive Parents Speakers Bureau.
A standout collegiate swimmer at the University of Wyoming, Lynn was inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame, was an NCAA Post‐Graduate Scholar and Academic All‐American, and a Rhodes Scholar finalist. He earned his MBA from Indiana University. Lynn and his wife of 28 years, Kathleen, have two young adult children, Clare and Griffin.
Welcome to the team, Lynn!
