Here's the impact you'll make and what we'll accomplish together

Capital is a limited essential resource that drive our business growth. Capital is required to fuel new deals and revenue; it is required for systems and operational improvements, and it is required to develop strategic capabilities and products for future growth. As a Senior Strategy Manager, you will develop and manage a capital budget that fully supports the realization of our strategic plans. You will act as the control point to ensure execution of the plan, identifying risk and opportunities and rebalancing investments as required to improve returns and manage cash flow. When capital constraints arise, you'll overcome these by facilitating the right prioritization decisions and communicate transparently to stakeholders so they can do their part.
