For Managing Directors Denny Nealon and Ben Metzger, being in sync as friends has led to many successful client outcomes. Their relationship started with the simple aim of communicating about shared business interests. It wasn't long before Denny, Head of US Partnerships at the US Consumer Bank, and Ben, Head of Transportation Investment Banking, realised the tangible results they could deliver for their airline clients by working collaboratively across their respective business lines.
Ben and Denny have consistently connected the dots between the investment banking and credit card sides of the business since meeting 10 years ago. Clients value the pair's integrated responsibility for the business relationship, and Denny and Ben both value each other’s support in their day-to-day work. This is their Power of Two2 story.
Scaling innovation can be challenging alone, so Ying Cao and Valerie Monchi harness the power of their friendship to deliver transformational change at Barclays.
