What do you like most about working for Mizuho Americas? And what do you believe differentiates them most from your competition? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for that question Ryan. While I’ve only been with Mizuho for two months, I know I made the right decision to join them. During the interview process I had the opportunity to talk to and “interview” many of the senior leaders. I also spoke with a number of the employees (at my request) to get a sense of the culture on the ground. What I heard during those conversations was overwhelmingly positive. Leadership that recognized they had work to do with respect to D&I and recognized the role they needed to play to make it successful. Employees who genuinely felt included in driving the organization forward and were engaged and enthusiastic about their work. Mizuho has experienced tremendous growth in the Americas and while a Japanese company, the Americas region truly owns their work. The challenges of starting a new role during a pandemic have been mitigated for me in many ways by the willingness of everyone to connect and share to ensure success. I believe Mizuho brings a different energy to the table and I’m excited by the prospects to do incredible work there.

Excited to hear your perspectives, thank you
