“I have the privilege of working alongside the most talented team in the industry each day, and I'm honored to serve as SEI's next CEO. I look forward to continuing to unlock SEI's potential, and I'm energized by the courage of our global workforce to capture the exciting opportunities ahead. SEI is uniquely positioned in the financial services industry to help our clients grow and manage change with confidence.”
“One of the things that I think has kept us being so relevant and fresh is our willingness to kind of challenge and reinvent ourselves every 10 years. I think our adherence to listening to clients and listening to the market and really trying to stay ahead of serving those needs.”
“I think moving forward every company will continue to figure out and think through how they position themselves more as a technology company. Technology has become front and center in everybody's strategy. It has been a big part of ours forever. And that technology is a big part of our asset management and investment management strategy.”
