Comerica Bank’s Executive Vice President and General Auditor Christine M. Moore was recognized as one of the nation’s most influential African American female executives by Black Enterprise during the publication’s Women of Power Summit on March 2.
Moore, a veteran of more than 20 years with Comerica Bank, was one of 136 influential leaders from across the country named to the Most Powerful Women in Corporate America list. The list honors executives who continue to empower their organizations and promote diversity in the corporate sector.
“Our editorial team developed this list to not only celebrate the black female business elite, but to demonstrate that it requires unparalleled expertise and resilience to break through barriers that female executives continue to face today,” said Black Enterprise President and Chief Executive Officer Earl Graves Jr. “Let’s get serious about using our power to provoke changes. We must ensure that corporate America will practice true equal opportunity.”
Moore was named to her current position in May 2016. Since that time, she has earned Certified-Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) as well as Certified Fiduciary and Investment Risk Specialist (CFIRS) designations.
“This well-deserved recognition speaks to Christine’s outstanding contributions, dedication and character,” said Ralph W. Babb Jr., Chairman and CEO, Comerica Incorporated and Comerica Bank. “Her invaluable leadership within Comerica and her impact in the community embodies Comerica’s core values, and we look forward to her continuing to inspire others to reach new heights.”
Moore has remained a pillar in the community through her volunteer work. She is the Vice Chair and executive board member of the Alternative for Girls organization and serves as a member of the Michigan Association of CPAs, Institute of Systems Audit and Control Association, Institute of Internal Auditors, Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists and the Executive Sponsor for Comerica’s African American Network, an employee resource networking group. Moore was also honored by the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. – Beta Omicron Zeta Chapter in Detroit – as the “Woman of the Year.”
