On October 6, American Banker will host its 14th annual “The Most Powerful Women in Banking and Finance” awards dinner. Protiviti is proud to be the exclusive Platinum Sponsor and to celebrate 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 and their unique stories. Next up in our series is Krithika!
- What was your path to Protiviti? – “I interned with Protiviti in 2013. After graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in Economics and Math, I returned to the firm full time as a consultant. I joined the Chicago office after graduating and then transferred to the London office late last year.”
- What excites you the most about your work in the financial services industry? – “The financial services industry is one of the most diverse, dynamic and innovative industries to work in. During my time at Protiviti, I’ve seen a wide range of clients within financial services including large retail banks, small digital lending firms, a clearinghouse and a supply and trading company. Each opportunity gave me varied insights into different aspects of the industry. Since I work largely within the risk, data and analytics world, it’s very interesting to see how the same model might be implemented in different firms on completely different customer bases with very different products – one dance done many ways.”
- What has been the biggest challenge you have faced working in the financial services industry? – “The dynamic nature of the financial services industry also comes with the challenge of keeping up to date with the latest trends, regulatory updates and best practices. I help out with a couple newsletters on emerging risk in financial services to keep track of it within my day to day work.”
- Who has played a critical role in the development of your career? – “My advisors at Protiviti have always been absolute legends and reply to my emails, even if it’s 6 pm in New York.”
- What advice would you give to both current and future women in banking to face the future with confidence? – “Speak up, know yourself and make sure you’re heard.”
