More than 20 years ago, I started at Citi as a market risk analyst in New York City. Since then, I have benefited from the career opportunities that come with being at a global bank and have worked across the world. In 2018, I took on the role of leading Citi’s franchise in Ukraine and have had the pleasure of making my home with my family in the beautiful city of Kyiv.
At Citi, we like to think of ourselves as a “human bank,” and nowhere has that been more apparent than in Ukraine. When Russia invaded our country last year, the entire firm moved swiftly to support our colleagues and clients. Thanks to the courage and dedication of our Citi Ukraine team, our business here has operated continuously throughout the war. That’s allowed us to support clients on the ground who are overseeing essential services and the non-governmental organizations that are delivering aid. On the cover of this report, you will find some images illustrating these heroic efforts.
I am also incredibly grateful to my Citi colleagues in Poland, Romania, Hungary and other neighboring countries who have received displaced Ukrainians and mobilized volunteer efforts. On top of that, so many members of the firm from around the world have found other ways to support us in Ukraine. Simply put, I could not be prouder to work at Citi.
May 2023 bring peace to Ukraine.
Citi Country Officer, Citi Ukraine
