He is always famous for being liking the company leaner and efficient. His action is expected to save about $900 million in cost savings next year and annual expense savings of more than $1.1 billion beginning in 2014.


Citi has always been known to have more bright spot as compare to its competitors when it comes to consumer banking which will be hit hardest with about 35% of the charges and the majority of layoff in branch banking and consumer lending now. CEO said out of 11,000 jobs 6,200 jobs will be cut in the global consumer banking unit. About 40 percent of those layoffs will be in technology and operations support areas.
