​What Others Have to Say

Steve ChapmanSuku’s friend and fellow business leader, Steve Chapman, retired CEO of Ruan Transportation, sums up nicely why Suku is the embodiment of a community leader:

“In all of the years I have worked with Suku, I have never known him to challenge anything without being part of the solution. It is easy to point to what is wrong, but it takes a leader to motivate people beyond the problem to the solution. Suku Radia is a leader. He does not dwell on problems, but rather spends his time on opportunities.”


Here are a few of the ways Suku’s other friends and colleagues have described him:

Dr. Anuj Bhargava“In describing our relationship over the last few years, Suku has been truly selfless, just simply willing and wanting to help. He has never been judgmental, always very supportive, as well as realistic. His ability to listen with intention to understand the other person is exceptional. He is a very genuine and a humble human being.” – Dr. Anuj Bhargava, CEO, iDERC and My Diabetes Home


Ambassador Kenneth Quinn“Suku’s litany of increasingly responsible financial positions is well-known and he has been seemingly involved in every civic and philanthropic campaign. His community leadership is legendary.” – Ambassador Kenneth Quinn (ret.), President, World Food Prize

 Mary Sellers​“Suku has set the standard for corporate leadership when it comes to focusing on the long-term benefits of promoting diversity and cultural competency at Bankers Trust and in the banking industry. His example has led other leaders throughout our community to mirror his efforts, and we are all better for it.” – Mary Sellers, U.S. President, United Way Worldwide


Alan Tubbs“He has a way of inspiring others to follow and give their best. Like they say of all-star athletes, Suku makes those around him better.” – Alan Tubbs, Chairman and CEO, Ohnward Bancshares, Inc.

“He is the proverbial Energizer bunny, always up and making a difference before most are out of bed, and until most have gone home for the night. He is the true definition of civility and knows no strangers.” – Rich Willis, Willis Auto Campus
