A word from our Chief Strategy Officer, Alex Drummond, on the Enterprise Strategy team’s mission

“In Enterprise Strategy, we have a dual mandate: develop impactful strategic recommendations that shape the future of American Express, and to attract and nurture top talent to become future leaders of our company and industry. To do this, we bring an unbiased, external perspective to our recommendations, rooting them in practical reality to deliver the greatest impact. We foster a culture of collaboration, coaching, and mentorship, to develop talent and successfully set colleagues up for future roles in the business."

We’re in charge of solving tough problems and creating actionable solutions for the CEO, Executive Team, and key business leaders at American Express. We develop the mid- and long-term, enterprise-wide strategies that influence the future of the entire company. 

How We Do It

With a global presence in New York and London, our team fosters strategic dialogue across the different business units and functions at American Express. Using a rigorous and structured approach to solving problems, we develop solutions that create value and back our customers.
