    By Candi Wolff, Executive Vice President and Head of Global Government Affairs, Citi September 08, 2015 01:00 AM

    Citi is proud to be the title sponsor of The Citi Open Tournament, which brings a week-full of world-class tennis and renowned athletes to Washington, D.C. each year. This year, the tournament, which ran from August 2 - August 10 had the strongest field in 47 years and hosted tennis stars Andy Murray, Kei Nishikori, John Isner and Sloane Stephens.

    The Citi Open is unique because the tournament's owner and beneficiary is a nonprofit community organization -- the Washington Tennis & Education Foundation (WTEF). The WTEF serves at risk kids in Washington, D.C. by providing after school academic tutoring and tennis lessons and a safe environment to learn critical life skills. As a proud partner, Citi strives to support the efforts of the WTEF and this year we increased our support of WTEF through programs that raised awareness of the organization and honored the students and members of the organization.

    David Chubak, Head of Productivity at Citi, was a panelist at the May 15th Know Your Value program in Washington, D.C. After the event, I caught up with David and asked him a few questions:

    Can you tell us a little bit about your role as Citi’s Head of Productivity?

    I am often delighted, though not so surprised when people ask me what “Productivity” means. It gives me the opportunity to talk about the work we are doing every day across Citi, taking our execution to the next level, and delivering on our mission as an enabler of progress. It makes for a lively, engaging conversation on new enterprising ideas we should scale across our global organization.

    I am most grateful for the relationships I’ve developed working with smart, passionate, globally-minded leaders. It’s one thing to deliver exceptional results responsibly. It’s another to deliver them with imagination and determination. These are important characteristics that I value as I think about how to find and create more opportunities for our future global leaders.
