Assistant Vice President, Technology & operations

What do you enjoy most about your job? What are the most rewarding aspects of your job?

What I enjoy most about my job is the opportunity to work on highly visible projects within the Global Technology & Operations line of business to solve issues that matter to our associates and culminate with a positive impact on our clients.  It is highly rewarding to work a project to completion and then be able witness how your work made a positive impact on others.

How does the bank support your development?

First and foremost, I was brought into the bank through a military development program and it was a first-class experience.  Secondly, the bank heavily promotes mentorship and I have been fortunate to have worked with several mentors that took the time to help me grow personally and professionally.  There are also numerous self-paced training tools and development programs offered by the bank that allow employees to further develop in areas they want to improve upon.

My advice to students would be to ask questions early and often.

In one word, how would you describe Bank of America Merrill Lynch?


What advice would you give to students?

My advice to students would be to ask questions early and often. Understanding the “why” behind how things are done is imperative to becoming a contributing team member as quickly as possible.  Most people can be trained to perform a routine function, but you can add significant value and grow as a leader once you understand the reasoning behind what is being done and how parts of a process operate as a whole.
