Today’s spotlight: Vickie Larsen
Senior vice president and market director
BOK Financial Private Wealth
Background: Larsen leads a wealth management team that provides integrated strategy and execution in multiple disciplines including, investment management, trust guidance and administration, expert financial planning, and private banking for high-net-worth individuals and families.
Professional advice: “Share your aspirations with your manager and establish a development plan. Seek advice from leaders who inspire you and ask for a mentor. Be nimble and open to coaching. Serve your community and search for leadership opportunities.”
Lesson learned in 2020: “Challenge provides opportunity. I am inspired by how a corporate culture that puts the employees along with the client’s in the forefront delivers excellence. Communication is key. Stay in front with leadership messages and avoid leaving employees to make assumptions.”
Surprising fact: “I did not attend college, which is a surprise to most. I became a teller at 19 and never looked back. I enjoyed learning all aspects from the front line and moved into my first management role at age 22. I have enjoyed working with, and learning from amazing leaders. Learning is continuous, and I appreciate the opportunity every day.”
