Ken Lewis Is A Movie Producer Now*

If it feels like it’s been forever since we’ve heard from Ken Lewis it’s because it has. Following his retirement in 2009, the former Bank of America CEO went underground to do some soul-searching. To figure out what made Kenneth D. Lewis tick. Did he want to want to be a CEO of another company? Did he want to get involved in another industry entirely? Did he want to grow a beard again? Did he want to be a shepherd? These are the questions that needed answers and today, finally, we’ve got some. No word on the beard but it appears that for now, Lewis is staying away from Wall Street and pursuing another passion: the movie business.

The retired Bank of America CEO has joined the board of Studio Charlotte Development, the Bert Hesse-led group hoping to finance and build a major production studio here. In a prepared statement, Lewis said, “I am pleased to support this effort to bring another world-class project to Charlotte. I have no doubt that it will prove to be a watershed event that will provide lasting benefits to Charlotte and the entire region.”

His title may be “board member” but presumably Lewis will be as hands on as it takes to make this project a success. If it means donning multiple hats and writing, producing, directing, and starring in a biopic about a young-(ish) bank CEO forced to make a terrible choice, then that’s the way it’ll have to be.
