The financial crisis of the past few years has made this industry one of the most unsettled in all of business today. Former titans are now gone from the scene or have merged with former rivals in order to survive. A rapidly changing regulatory environment seeks to rein in past market excess, but it’s unclear where or how the new lines will be drawn. Wholesale change is taking place in financial services—one where knowledge of how Washington works has become increasingly critical.
As a firm, Lochlin Partners has broad-based experience in both consumer and institutional market segments. We have conducted searches in consumer banking, insurance, real estate, credit cards, and asset management for large, multinational corporations, as well as small-to-medium-sized institutions. And we have deep expertise in public policy and government affairs.
We understand that there is an exceptionally competitive market for talent in financial services. Every firm is looking for the “best athletes” who can make a bottom-line difference as the very nature of the industry continues to evolve. We also recognize our clients’ emphasis on social responsibility in the job description. The candidates we find must be persons of high integrity who will be stewards of their firms and of the financial system as a whole.
