The Most Powerful Women in Banking 2020

Now in its eighteenth year, The Most Powerful Women in Banking™ has from the beginning been focused on identifying a community of influential women in financial services — honoring their business acumen, professional achievements and personal tenacity. In the years that followed, those values and that commitment to community have guided the stewardship of the program, which has expanded to include new ranking categories and new opportunities for professionals to connect.

Today, The Most Powerful Women in Banking embraces more than performance; it is dedicated to the professional development of women executives across the banking and financial services industry. Past and present honorees give special attention to extending their influence — to those they mentor, to those in their home and work communities, and to those who have yet to begin their careers.

The centerpiece of the Women in Banking program are rankings of the 25 Most Powerful Women in Banking and the 25 Most Powerful Women in Finance. In addition, American Banker identifies 25 Women to Watch and recognizes Top Teams in Banking to honor companies with strong female representation in their senior ranks.

“The women selected for the ranking are not only exceptional at their jobs, but an inspiration to others. They are leaders, at their companies, in the industry and in their communities,” said Executive Editor Bonnie McGeer, who chairs American Banker’s Women in Banking Editorial Committee. “Our hope is that by calling attention to such outstanding women, we can help amplify efforts by the industry to diversify its senior ranks.”
