Consumer & Commercial Banking

In banking, people are your strongest asset

Madison Pearl’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 senior management who can lead through change and operate effectively in a highly pressurized environment. We help with the restructure at the senior level and key leadership ranks of local banks, regional 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 management. 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 management must now take more responsibility and embody a diverse and rare combination of skill sets, including creativity, and have high integrity and a commitment to excellence. As competition for talent and margins increases, securing a strong leadership team is an essential business strategy.
