Tips to land business with PNC:

Know your core competency and niche. Organizations typically look for a business with a specialty product or service versus a jack-of-all-trades. Determine what differentiates you from your competitors besides price and how you can highlight those differences.

Consider partnering with a prime company (Tier One supplier). As the competitive landscape is changing and regulatory environment is evolving within the financial industry, companies like PNC require their suppliers to have scalability and certain risk management practices in place. Finding a strategic partner is a good way to get started.

PNC believes that hiring veterans and working with veteran-owned businesses allow it to better compete and provide exceptional products and services to PNC customers.” – Viju Verghis, EVP, Chief Financial Officer, Shared Services Finance and Enterprise Spend
