Alumni Spotlight: Deb Talbot (BS '72)

 

Deb Talbot graduated from the University of Memphis in 1972 with a B.S. in mathematics. She embarked on a teaching career but soon used connections she made at the University to obtain a position in banking. Within ten years of graduating, she was appointed as vice president and division executive for Chase Manhattan Bank in New York City. By 1993, Deb had climbed to one of the highest 25 executive positions in the company, and was one of only five women serving as an executive vice president.

 

Growing up on a farm in Ripley, Tennessee, Deb was able to take many valuable lessons from farm-life to working in the corporate world. She was very ambitious and worked very hard. In addition to her career, Deb served on many boards and volunteered at a number of charitable and civic organizations. These efforts led to a number of prestigious awards, including an Outstanding Alumna Award from the U of M’s College of Arts & Sciences and a “Women Who Have Broken the Glass Ceiling” award. Deb is now retired and enjoys living in Tampa, Florida, with her husband, Tom Anderson.
