  • A Moment To Appreciate Those Who Serve

    By Julie Scammahorn, Chief Auditor of Citibank, N.A., Compliance and Anti-Money Laundering; U.S. Marine Corps Veteran and Ed Skyler, Head of Global Public Affairs November 01, 2018 01:00 PM

    On November 11, the United States observes Veterans Day to celebrate all those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, and the United Kingdom observes Remembrance Day to honor those who sacrificed themselves in the line of duty. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, making this year’s observance particularly significant. We want to take this opportunity to express gratitude to all of those who have served and sacrificed to help protect our freedoms.

  • Citi Delegates Participate in the 2016 One Young World Summit

    By Charif Mekdache, Associate, Derivative Sales and William Harper, Senior Associate, Corporate Banking November 01, 2016 12:00 PM

    In September, 26 Citi colleagues from around the world joined 1,300 delegates from more than 190 countries at the One Young World (OYW) Summit in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Prior to the summit, the Citi delegation met in Toronto with Citi Canada’s leadership team and local business and community leaders, including Toronto Mayor John Tory. We also met with and heard inpsiring stories of number from young men and women who had benefitted from Citi Foundation grant partner Rise Asset Development (which invests in entrepreneurs with a history of mental health or addiction challenges).

    The 2016 OYW summit focused on a wide range of urgent global issues including education and human rights, and sparked numerous conversations on how today’s youth can best effect meaningful societal change. Throughout our three days in Ottawa, delegates discussed and debated the importance of tomorrow’s change being led by today’s youth. And we had the pleasure of hearing from a number of young leaders from around the world about the different ways they had been able to impact their respective communities. We were also fortunate to hear from numerous world leaders, including Nobel Peace Prize winners former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and Professor Muhammad Yunis, on issues including women’s rights, global climate change and the refugee crisis.

  • Jane Fraser on Leadership

    May 02, 2016 12:00 PM

    The Harvard Business School (HBS) Club of New York interviewed alumna and Citi Latin America CEO Jane Fraser on her successful career and affecting change in global companies for their "In the Spotlight" series. Jane, who is the recipient of this year's HBS Club of New York Leadership Award, discussed what it takes to lead on a global level, as well as her biggest challenges on the job. Read the Q&A with journalist and fellow alumna Chitra Nawbatt below.

    You’ve been in financial services for most of your career. Now you lead 23 countries in Latin America for Citigroup. What does it take to lead globally?

    I think it’s a combination of setting a context, courage and curiosity. So in terms of context-setting, you have to provide a vision for people, a sense of purpose, and setting the stage so they know what they should be doing and some of the decisions they should be making, how they should be innovating. Courage, because there are some tough calls, and at the end of the day, the buck stops with you and you’re the one that has to make them. And then in terms of curiosity, if you’re not asking lots of questions, and you’re not really engaging with people and you’re curious about the world, I think you miss a lot of different things.

    Your career has spanned Goldman Sachs, McKinsey, now Citigroup – large, political organizations. So where does that courage come in when you’re trying to affect change?

    I think the courage comes in just being brutally honest about who you are, what are some of the challenges you personally have faced, and being as authentic and real about yourself as possible, so that the people in the middle of the organization relate to you. Because, otherwise, if they’re not relating to you, that whole engine of the organization isn’t really trusting you and going in the direction that you’re trying to take 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.
