American Banker Announces The Most Powerful Women in Banking Honorees

American Banker released the names of the 2022 honorees of The Most Powerful Women in Banking. The program celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

Thasunda Brown Duckett’s new position as CEO of TIAA lands her on The Most Powerful Women in Finance list for the first time. Titi Cole’s promotion to CEO of legacy franchises at Citi moved her up to The Most Powerful Women in Banking.

This year’s honorees were the advocacy for their companies’ environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. On the Top Teams list, the US Bank team leading their new centralized ESG office was recognized for their efforts, as well as several other honorees who spearheaded key strategic programs in this area including:

  • Candace Browning, head of bank of America Global Research and vice chair of the Bank of America Institute, Bank of America
  • Ranjana Clark, head of global transaction banking, MUFG
  • Jane Fraser, CEO, Citigroup
  • Florence Pourchet, CEO of CIB Latin America and head of corporate responsibility Americas, BNP Paribas

“It’s been 20 years since American Banker first spotlighted the achievements of women leaders in financial services. Since then, we’ve seen inspiring progress and innovative leadership, including the emphasis placed this year on environmental, social and governance issues,” Chana Schoenberger, editor-in-chief at American Banker, said. “It feels important and appropriate that so many of our honorees are driving meaningful ESG efforts for their organizations.”

“The 20th anniversary of The Most Powerful Women in Banking represents an impressive milestone and gives us an opportunity to reflect on the past while looking toward the future,” Gemma Postlethwaite, CEO of Arizent, publisher of American Banker, said. “When I think about what this year’s honorees have accomplished as business leaders, as mentors to women in their organizations, as inspiration to the next generation of bankers — I am confident we have the right leaders forging ahead and shaping the industry for the next 20 years and for future generations.”
