State Street Corporate Strategy Vice President-3 in Boston, Massachusetts

State Street’s Corporate Strategy Group is focused on providing strategic support and insight across State Street’s diverse business lines (e.g., asset management, custody services, data & analytics solutions, FX & treasury) to drive effective decision-making and action by senior management and the Board.

This is a great opportunity for a Case Team Leader to transition from consulting and join a very small, high-impact team with direct exposure to State Street’s senior management, Management Committee, CEO and the Board.

As a Vice President on the Corporate Strategy team, you will participate in complex strategy projects, working with senior leaders across the organization. Typical projects could include strategy development, analyzing fintech opportunities for partnerships/acquisitions, market entry or exit, market segmentation, product / customer positioning and profitability, and capital investment decisions.
