North America Regional Lead – Citi Learning – Leadership, Executive and Professional Development/Global Business Relationship Management

Coaching and developing teams has been a thread throughout Laine’s career. As she worked in business roles and later within the Compensation areas of Human Resources, it was her work leading teams that has been the cornerstone of her career. After spending 20 years working in these diverse roles, Laine decided to parlay her passion for coaching and developing people into her formal role. In her current role since 2012, Laine is the Director of Leadership, Executive and Professional Development for North America at Citi where she also has responsibility for Global Business Relationship Management.

With Citi since 1991, Laine has seen the organization change dramatically. Laine has enjoyed supporting Citi’s senior leaders by serving as a Coach and Faculty for Citi’s Senior Leadership Program.

Laine has also taught on an adjunct basis at NYU’s School of Professional Studies.

Laine holds an M.B.A. in Human Resources Management from the Zicklin School of Business – Baruch College and a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Connecticut.
