On October 6, American Banker will host its 14th annual “The Most Powerful Women in Banking and Finance” awards dinner. This invitation-only celebration of achievement in banking and financial services brings together more than 550 of today’s most influential banking and finance leaders, including those named in the rankings as well as past honorees and special guests.
Protiviti is proud to be the exclusive Platinum Sponsor for the third consecutive year. We look forward to celebrating this milestone achievement with executives and leaders from some of our clients!
To gear up for this momentous moment, we are going to spend the month of September spotlighting a few #ProtivitiWomenInFSI. The series will feature a variety of women, from diverse backgrounds and career perspectives. While their stories are all unique, the one thing they have in common is that they work closely with Protiviti’s financial services clients. First up in the series is Roxanne!
- What was your path to Protiviti? – “I attended The University of Illinois and interned with Protiviti summer 2012 before starting full time in summer 2013. I worked in the Chicago office for three years before recently transferring to our Singapore office for 18 months through our Global Mobility program.”
- What excites you the most about your work in the financial services industry? – “The financial crisis triggered a lot of change in how the financial services industry operates, and it is exciting to be a part of that by consulting with large financial service organizations on how to adapt.”
- Who has played a critical role in the development of your career? – “The Protiviti mentor and advisor program has been very helpful in providing me with various levels of advisors. From a peer to a management perspective, I feel that I always have someone to look to for honest advice and direction.”
- What advice would you give to both current and future women in banking to face the future with confidence? – “First, find someone you trust and respect to act as your mentor then reach out to them on a regular basis. Second, don’t be afraid to take opportunities or roles that you don’t think you are ‘ready for’ yet. You can push yourself and grow into it.”
