Kathryn Goodrich : Staff Auditor – Internal Audit
Before joining Webster, I held several positions within the retail clothing industry including management positions with Esprit and Talbots. I started my career with Webster Bank in December 2006 as the Assistant Branch Manager of the West Hartford Center branch, which is one of Webster’s highest volume branches. During the next 2 years, I built upon my past experiences with external customers and broadened my knowledge of Retail Banking products, services, policies and procedures. These experiences eventually led me to explore a new opportunity within the Internal Audit department.
In October 2008, I accepted the position of Staff Auditor. I appreciate the opportunity Webster Bank has given me to follow and fulfill my career development goals. In my current role, I partner with the Corporate functions of Finance and Accounting as well as Webster subsidiaries, such as Webster Business Credit Corporation and Center Capital Corporation, in reviewing, assessing and testing their policies, procedures, and controls to ensure functionality and adequacy. This opportunity allows me to develop critical skills and competencies that will help me achieve my future career goals at Webster Bank including risk assessment, project management, fraud mitigation techniques, building and understanding metrics and performance management.
