How RBC’s Kimmell ‘Bulldozed’ Through the Glass Ceiling
December 18, 2019 by Ginger Szala
Kristen Kimmell, the new head of Advisor Recruiting and Field Marketing of RBC Wealth Management, recently received a compliment that first unnerved her.
“Someone told me I was ‘like a bulldozer,’” which made her wonder if she really had received a compliment, Kimmell said in an interview.
“Once [the person] explained that a trailblazer was someone who ran down unknown paths alone, but I bulldozed the way so everybody can run with me, I realized it was a huge compliment,” explained the executive .
That pretty much sums up Kimmell’s career, which today means working in the firm’s Minneapolis headquarters and helping to find solutions for RBC’s 2,000 financial advisors and their clients.
