According to Wells Fargo’s Lisa Hutter, an employee can be proactive in being identified as a high potential rather than wait to be tapped by management.

Hutter is the senior vice president of wealth brokerage and retirement regional planning manager for New England, New York regions at Wells Fargo, which is No. 11 on the DiversityInc Top 50 List. During a panel discussion at DiversityInc’s High Potentials and the War for Talent event, Hutter discussed her career at the company as well as how she was noticed for her talent.

In the following video, Hutter shares that, prior to being identified as a high potential, she created a business plan focused on women clients and prospects in the marketplace, which she presented to her market leader. Hutter also explains why she continues to stay with Wells Fargo.

DiversityInc Best Practices Recruiting High Potentials/Special Awards Event took place Sept. 30, 2015 at Newark Liberty International Airport Marriott in Newark, N.J.  “High Potentials: Why I Stayed at My Company” panelists also included Dontae Newell, Chief of Staff to VP, Hauling and Extraction, Caterpillar; and Porsche Pettiford, Regional Senior Director Modern Essentials and Extended Stay Lodging, Marriott International.
