  • Citi's Tracey Weber Named 2012 Mobile Banker of the Year

    By Michelle Peluso, Global Consumer Chief Marketing and Internet Officer, Citi June 06, 2012 09:00 AM

    American Banker's Bank Technology News recently named Citi's Tracey Weber 2012 Mobile Banker of the Year. As Managing Director for Consumer Internet and Mobile Banking in North America, Tracey guides a world-class and diverse digital team that, alongside Citi's ebiz technology team, continues to do exceptional work for clients.

    Citi has made great progress over the past year and a half realizing Vikram Pandit's vision of Citi as the world's premier digital bank. On the U.S. Consumer side, we built and introduced an entirely new suite of mobile offerings that have raised the bar for the industry. We did it by putting clients at the center of our strategy - listening to what they want and need, building intuitive products and services that simplify their lives, and providing access to banking no matter where they are or when they need it.

  • Citi Employees' Recycled Phones Help Domestic Violence Victims

    By Irene Blake, Coordinator of Citi’s US “Wireless Drop-Off” June 05, 2012 09:00 AM

    Citi holds a drive each year to gather and donate wireless devices our employees no longer need. The drive is an important component of our Sustainable Technology program, and combines Citi's commitment to responsible asset management through recycling with our passion for active involvement in the communities where we work and live.

    In 2011, our US employees collected more than 2,500 no-longer-used wireless devices. We wanted not only to keep them out of landfills, but also to give them new life while helping those in need. We worked with HopeLine® from Verizon to have our "data-scrubbed" devices recycled and disposed of under a zero-landfill policy.

    By Michelle Peluso, Global Consumer Chief Marketing and Internet Officer, Citi May 02, 2012 09:00 AM

    As we continue to focus on our corporate key principle of ingenuity and work aggressively to realize Vikram Pandit's vision of becoming the world's premier digital bank, we are constantly thinking about new ways to use technology effectively to enhance the client experience.

    Over the past year, we have made great strides in those efforts. We've launched new applications for tablets in the U.S. and mobile phones around the globe. We began the global rollout of our new online banking experience, and we started enabling customers to deposit checks into their personal Citibank checking accounts via their mobile phones. And we've continued to invest in servicing our customers through social media, chat, and other digital channels. I am proud to share with you that recently, three separate, independent research groups recognized Citi for our efforts:
