Citi appoints new senior HR officer

Investment bank and financial services group Citi has announced it has promoted one of its most experienced HR professionals, Helen Hale, to the role of senior HR officer (EMEA).

Reporting to the organisation’s head of HR, Hale’s new appointment is the latest in a long line of human resources roles she has held since joining the business more than 20 years ago.

Most recently, Helen was head of HR for Citi’s Markets and Securities Services business in EMEA.

Before that, she was the head of HR, global functions and operations and technology in EMEA and HR and, prior to that, she had roles in Citi Private Bank and also worked to recruit its annual intake of graduates and MBAs.

Hale replaced Jenny Grey, who has moved to chair the firm’s Accountability, Culture and Talent (ACT) Transformation efforts full time.
