Cetera’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Jeannie Finkel, has been named as an honoree for Ragan’s 2020 Top Women in HR Awards in the Leadership category. Finkel joins a powerful list of women who are leading the charge in human resources and ensuring that quality, productivity and morale are at their highest.
Finkel was nominated by her team at Cetera for her incredible contributions since joining the firm two years ago. In 2019, she led a 26-person HR team (hiring many of them), upgraded recruiting and filled more than 400 full-time and 180 part-time positions, including key executives. She championed paid time off for volunteerism, introduced goals-based on a pay-for-performance system, training over 1,000 team members and managers.
Additionally, when COVID-19 struck, Finkel co-led the Pandemic Business Continuity Plan for crisis management and risk mitigation, enacting an employee work-from-home policy; she is now planning the return-to-office strategy. In her spare time, she serves on the national board of a nonprofit dedicated to the advancement of people of color.
Cetera’s CEO, Adam Antoniades, said, “Our team is thrilled to congratulate Jeannie on this well-deserved recognition. From her very first day at Cetera, she has lived into her passion of making a difference in people's lives. She has had an incredible impact on the employees and talent we have at Cetera and contributed tremendously to our growth as a firm.”
