Tory Haggerty is a best-selling author and banking professional who has taught dozens of banking topics to thousands of bankers over his 14-year banking career. He started out as an FDIC commissioned examiner and has sat in about every seat since including compliance officer, auditor, and now CEO of a consulting company. He has also founded a training university, launching the nation’s first ever commercially available fair lending school and fair lending certification.

Haggerty earned an M.B.A. from the University of South Dakota and a B.S. from South Dakota State University. He is a 2021 GSBC graduate and has earned five industry banking certifications including the Certified Regulatory Compliance Manager designation. In 2020, he retired from the Air National Guard as an officer with more than 20 years of distinguished military service.

Since Haggerty has been a regulator, compliance officer, auditor and now consultant, he’s been able to see banking from all angles. He quickly relates with his audience and is able to inject humor into otherwise dull topics. Through the power of storytelling, he relies on his years of real-world experience to relate topics in a way listeners can easily understand and quickly use. Rather than just provide theory, he injects viable solutions into his training.
