Social Media Speaker Nigel Morris is the co-founder of Capital One alongside Richard Fairbank. Nigel retired as COO in 2004.

In 2004, the year he retired, CapitalOne managed over $80 billion of loans for 50 million customers, which generated $1.5 billion in profit. From an emerging start-up to an established company, CapitalOne made a successful transition to a company valued at over $20 billion.
