WHY IS THIS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY?

The role is Manager of Process of Improvement and is to be based out of the greater Columbus, OH marketplace.

You would be aligning yourself with a well run institution with a top notch reputation.

The opportunity for you is to be a true “impact player” within this organization with access and visibility to the highest levels of management. This is a dream opportunity for someone who would have the desire to champion efforts around continuous improvement and transformational work across all lines of business and throughout the geographic footprint of the bank.

Great benefits all around, including, believe it or not, a defined benefit plan. That's right; they actually have a fully funded pension plan – no employee contribution needed at all! That means you have a retirement stream growing regardless of a participation in 401k match program or not!
