Some of my most important and impactful mentors have been the senior women that I've worked with who have coached me on my professional life, my personal life, and at time just given me that kick I needed to say, "You can do this, be confident" and have been really my biggest cheerleaders. double-quote-close

My name is Maureen. I'm a partner and I joined Bain in 2003 after graduating from Harvard Business School. When I joined Bain I thought I'd be a retail person and started working on a bunch of retail projects which were fine and I enjoyed them. But then a couple years into my Bain career I met a partner in the financial services practice and did one project with her and I just loved it. I loved the analytics behind the financial services work and I liked the partner team a lot.

I now focus on financial services and customer experience. I work a lot with chief customer officers which is a capability that has become a big deal over the last few years as customer experience has become really important to a lot of companies. The cool thing about Bain though is you keep evolving that expertise over time - the generalist track enables you to do that and to make your own path.
