Which of TIAA's corporate values resonate most with you, and why?

"Take Personal Accountability." To take ownership of one’s actions is a value that resonates the most with me. As simple as that may sound, it often involves self-awareness, courage, leadership, and integrity to accept the success and failure associated with our everyday choices.

Were there any special aspects of your experience prior to TIAA that have benefited you here?

I started my career in Emerging Markets in the early 1990s at a time of major crisis. At that time I worked for a manager who pushed me to “think out of the box.” This practice shaped much of my investment philosophy, and continues to help guide my investment decision-making.

Describe the culture at TIAA. What makes it unique?

The people make TIAA unique. They strongly believe in ensuring the financial well-being of those that serve us. My colleagues are bright, hard-working, and motivated. They also are principled and ethical in their decision-making.
