Consumer & Commercial Banking
In banking, human capital is your strongest asset.
Korn Ferry’s Consumer and Commercial Banking Sector focuses on helping banks find, develop, and retain best-in-class talent. The challenges of the post-financial crisis demand a higher quality of leaders who can lead through change and in a highly pressurized environment. We help reconstruct boards and leadership ranks of regional community banks, superregional banks, and global financial services companies, through CEO and functional-level succession planning and onboarding, executive assessments and coaching, top management team effectiveness, and talent management strategy development.
Regulatory scrutiny demands a more intense focus on talent.
As the post-financial crisis environment continues to sift into place, enhanced regulatory scrutiny and a focus on compensation and incentives have intensified the necessity for more strategic leaders. Not only are regulators significantly more involved, but boards of directors have an enhanced obligation to demonstrate systematic and sustainable approaches to operations and rewards that benefit shareholders as well as the global financial system. Today’s leaders must embody a diverse and rare combination of skill sets, including high integrity, collegiality, creativity, commitment to excellence, and entrepreneurialism. As competition for talent and margins increases, securing a strong leadership team is an essential business strategy.
