Operations and Technology

Promoting Experts in Management of Systems and People

Many firms across financial services have been recognizing periods of significant business and structural change. Significant pressures to reduce costs and maximize efficiencies have driven the need to consolidate inefficient operations and enhance technology platforms while ensuring operating results and client satisfaction do not suffer. This has led many to restructure senior management as well, resulting in operations and technology becoming a top function for the organization. Therefore, the technical skills and leadership abilities of executives in this space have evolved into the need to effectively run a combined function and often manage people through extensive transformation. All the while, this person must be someone who can communicate to a broader audience of employees and know how to foster relationships with business leaders up to board level executives.
