Relationship Managers (RM) act as a single point of contact for two Network Innovation & Asset Leaders (I&AL) – Consumer and CBO. The role’s primary objective is to assist these I&ALs and their networks access resources and services across NBI, which includes I&P, in order to meet their asset strategy objectives and support their High Growth Businesses (HGB).

  • Act as a single point of contact to drive forward requests from Consumer and CBO across NBI in order to fast track NBI consultations/advisory discussions 
  • As a part-time Asset Chief of Staff for Consumer, you will collaborate closely with the Consumer I&AL to enable commercialization of Consumer assets. In this role, you will:
  • Work hand-in-hand with Consumer I&AL and Consumer Industry Leadership to build traction for Consumer asset portfolio and keep monthly dashboards up to date for the Consumer Industry Leadership team (evaluating market traction vs. Industry asset targets/PMD goals)
