Roles and Responsibilities

Pete Redshaw is an Analyst for the Banking team (Analysis and Evaluation) within Research and Advisory. He helps CIOs, Bank execs and Product Leaders in this industry with their strategic planning for banks. What kind of a bank should they be and what is their plan to get there? With that vision and destination in mind, they also need to progress effectively (which metrics and KPIs to use to measure performance), efficiently (cost optimization) and have a compelling value prop (innovation). So his principal coverage areas include: CEO survey, CIO survey, Future of Banking, KPIs & Econometrics, Cost Optimization, the annual "Eye on Innovation" awards and the Recession/Downturn work. He has also added recently some coverage of Banking Payments Fraud Detection (aka, Transaction Monitoring) - a very narrow niche in the world of fraud.

Mr. Redshaw joined Gartner in 2000. Before that he was a Finance/Business Consultant at Capgemini (IT Services), where he was involved in IT project work for numerous clients in the financial services sector. He worked in the IT industry for 16 years before joining Gartner.
