Dragica Mihajlović, Banca Intesa, Chief Financial Officer/Member of the Executive Board

Ready for a New Generation of Leaders

Every step of my career has had its own purpose and its own challenges, but I’ve always been supported and enriched in that process by valuable mentoring.

At the same time, being a witness to and participant in the large and important changes that the banking system and Banca Intesa have gone through, along with essential professional satisfaction, creates motivation to improve further. The banking industry has one of the most dynamic rates of change – new technologies permeate all spheres of operations. Perhaps the best and most exciting aspect of this job is that you are constantly on a quest for new knowledge and new skills.

To be part of the Banca Intesa team is inspiring and extremely motivating. We respect individuality and diversity, but also function with dedication as a unified team that jointly overcomes all challenges. It isn’t by accident that we have, with organic growth and facing very strong competition, been at the very top for a long time. You can only maintain the trust of clients and be a company that’s responsible towards the community, and in the meantime achieve the best results year after year, if you are a collective of outstanding individuals who work and create together. I point out with pride that we began creating our future on time and with great enthusiasm.

We have a new generation of young leaders who are heavily involved in all important decision making processes of the business. It is hugely satisfying that we are an environment that provides full support for women to develop their careers without giving up and that we traditionally have a high proportion of women in management positions.

It is precisely for these reasons that I’m aware that the privilege I have in being a member of the Banca Intesa team also carries the responsibility that I now repay the support I received in my own business development and advancement by supporting the new generation of young leaders who will lead our Bank towards even greater success in the future. I am strongly convinced that the influence and voice of women will also be significant then, as has always been the case with us.
