Gabi Carvalho, based in Miami, heads the Global Retail Financial Services Practice, focusing on payments, retail banking, insurance, and asset management. Gabi has particular experience in CEO succession, management assessment, and development and board effectiveness.
I believe in a holistic approach to succession that looks both inside and outside of the organization and proactively develops internal talent. This is the best way to ensure an organization is engaged and successful now and in the future.
