Supplier Diversity

Executive Commitment

from Jim Amine (CEO of Investment Banking and Capital Markets)
and Timothy O’Hara (CEO of Global Markets)

At Credit Suisse, we understand that the diverse backgrounds of our suppliers represent a key competitive advantage in today’s global business and market environments. To that end, promoting supplier diversity is an integral part of our corporate strategy. This goes beyond including diverse businesses in our supply chain; it drives opportunity across functions by enabling value through brand enhancement, use of best practices, and innovation. It is essential that our business partners have the necessary competencies, structures, and opportunities to support the diverse environment that underpins our client focus and business strategy.
