Crowe Recruiting
| 12/11/2015
Clayton Mitchell (Indianapolis) joined Crowe in 2003 as a campus hire from Butler University in Indianapolis. Today, he’s a senior manager in Risk Consulting and he’s in the middle of a two-year secondment in London. While there, he’s responsible for Crowe Global Risk Consulting’s (CHGRC) financial services practice for the United Kingdom (UK). In addition to his role in the UK, he oversees the global direction and delivery of Risk Consulting regulatory compliance solutions within the capital markets spaces.

Q: What made you want to participate in a secondment?

A: During a Risk Consulting town hall meeting, I learned that CHGRC needed to bolster its leadership within the UK market. It piqued my interest so I approached Risk Consulting management about the opportunity. My main focus while in London is building the business and setting up the office for sustainable success. This includes business development, recruitment and staff development, marketing and brand awareness as well as increasing communication throughout Crowe International and its member firms. .

Q: What’s the biggest risk you’ve taken?

A: Accepting this assignment and moving to London. Not only has it allowed me to stretch professionally, but I’ve also been able to learn more and gain a better understanding of the cultures and business practices throughout Europe.

Q: What do you enjoy doing outside of your work at Crowe?

A: I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and all things sports. In the last 18 months, I’ve visited 10 countries and have been able to attend events such as the Ryder Cup in Scotland.

Q: What would people be surprised to learn about you?

A: I was the first person in my immediate family to graduate from college. My mother instilled the value of education in my sister and me from an early age and that value has carried on in both of us.
