American Banker recognizes Team BMO and Ernie Johannson as powerful leaders in banking

October 6, 2022 | Recognition

American Banker has named BMO’s team of women leaders and Ernie Johannson, Group Head, North American Personal and Business Banking, BMO Financial Group, to its list of the Most Powerful Women in Banking. This is the fourth consecutive year that Ernie has been featured on the list and the eleventh year that Team BMO has received this honor.

American Banker’s Most Powerful Women program recognizes the most influential women in financial services by honoring their business acumen, professional achievement and personal tenacity. The rankings represent a “who’s who” of individuals that are exceptional performers and others in our industry and our communities.

“Ernie and our entire team of talented women leaders recognized by American Banker exemplify what it means to Boldly Grow the Good in business and life,” said Darryl White, Chief Executive Officer, BMO Financial Group. “This significant honour for these leaders is a testament to BMO’s commitment to advancing women and eliminating barriers to inclusion. Congratulations to each of our Team BMO honourees for this tremendous recognition.”

These recognitions are a testament to our dedication to our customers and employees and a reflection of BMO’s focus on zero barriers to inclusion. As part of our Zero Barriers to Inclusion 2025 strategy, BMO is committed to sustaining a strong gender equity position. Even after reaching our goal of 40% gender equity, we continue to focus on ensuring representation of women in senior leadership and equipping them with tools for success.

Earlier this year, Caroline Donlin, Managing Director, Corporate Advisory Group, BMO Financial Group, was recognized on the publication’s Most Powerful Women in Banking: NEXT list. Ernie, Caroline and Team BMO will all be honored later this month at a gala in New York City. Ernie will also speak about being an effective mentor at American Banker’s Women in Banking Conference.

Congratulations to Ernie, Caroline and Team BMO on these well-deserved honors.
