For any professional, consistency can be more important than an up-and-down performance, even if the ups sometimes hit the realm of greatness. What about the pros who are consistently great? Those are the true superstars. And that's what we have here: the superstar program managers in the bank channel.

We sifted through the past five years of our Top Program Managers to see who appeared most consistently in our ranking. These managers had to appear in multiple years, and at least one of the last two years, to be considered. After that, we gave more weight for the higher rankings as well as for recent appearances.

In cases of a tie, we used the most recent rankings to decide their place on this list.
