Prior to joining Cohen Brown, Julie was SVP and Manager of the Retail Sales-and-Service Group at U.S. Bancorp where she was integrally involved in building and implementing all aspects of a proactive, consultative, and needs-based sales and service culture across Bancorp’s branch network. She is highly skilled in both influence and direct line leadership and coaching.
Julie keenly understands the challenges individuals and organizations can face in achieving and sustaining behavior change to optimize results. She has extensive experience coaching senior executives, and developing and implementing targeted performance solutions to address complex situations and achieve clients’ business objectives. She assists clients in the retail, business, private banking and insurance areas of financial services, as well as clients in other industries, including higher education and biotechnology.
Julie joined the financial services industry following a 10-year career with a global agriculture company in increasingly responsible sales, sales management, and marketing positions. As a District Manager, she led one of the worst-performing groups in the company through a major turnaround. Midway through her second year as a District Manager, year-to-date sales results had surpassed the prior year’s total results.
