LOUIE GRAVANCE IS CHANGING THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF BUSINESS IN AMERICA!

Those consumers who want fun as much as products are finding it in some unlikely places. Bank of America (NYSE:BAC - News) is the nation's largest consumer bank, but it doesn't want to act like one. That's why tellers at its 4,000 branches have recently started bolting their posts to hop around in conga lines. At Bank of America these antics are the result of mandatory "spirit training," developed because bank brass want employees to have the chirpy demeanor of workers in Disney theme parks. Bank of America insists customer satisfaction is soaring.
(Except of letter from JIM BUCHANAN, BANK OF AMERICA READINESS EXECUTIVE):
Dear Louie, I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere appreciation for all of your leadership, help and support. "The Bank of America Spirit" is transforming our company and I believe will also help to transform financial services around the world. We could not have designed, developed and now implemented "The Bank of America Spirit" without your expertise, tenacity and passion for world class excellence in everything you do. When the Bank of America brand becomes synonymous with great customer and associate experiences you should take personal pride in your contribution to our journey and achievement.
