Top management characteristics of local and international banks in Russia are considered in the article. Requirements for managers in different sectors of the economy differ, therefore, their characteristics, including education, work experience, age, gender and others, also differ. To analyze the portrait of a top manager in the Russian banking sector, extensive empirical research was conducted. Based on empirical data, the article compares the characteristics of board members in local and international banks on the Russian market. The sample of research consists of 178 banks. Information collected on the websites of banks about their organizational characteristics and information about board members, in particular, data on gender, age, citizenship, position and date of appointment, education and previous work experience. Analysis of frequency distribution as well as calculation of average and standard deviation of the research indicators found out little differences in characteristics of top management team in local and international banks. Percentage of foreigners among chairman of executive boards is higher in international banks, and as a result higher the percentage of those who have abroad education and international experience. The research has also demonstrated that in local banks percentage of female representation is higher than in international banks.
