Shortly after Maria DeMuro joined Barclays as an Associate, she was staffed on a deal with fellow Associate Caty Truei. Over the course of that deal and subsequent deals spanning the last five years, Caty and Maria’s relationship evolved into a real and lasting friendship that has seen them through major career and life milestones, including promotions and weddings. Each one uses the other as an instrumental sounding board for testing new ideas and receiving respected advice.
Caty and Maria have the common desire to leave things better than they found them. Active in recruitment efforts, junior banker initiatives and other team-specific activities, Caty and Maria now use their collective voices and networks to support women at all levels in the company and to create positive change for junior colleagues in Banking. This is their story.
