Broadridge Advances Edmund Reese to Chief Financial Officer

Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: BR), a global Fintech leader, announced on Monday that it has advanced Edmund Reese to Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective from the end of November.

A press release announced that Broadridge Financial Solutions, a leading provider of investor communications and technology-driven solutions, has promoted Edmund Reese to Chief Financial Officer to execute its growth strategy and deliver value to its stakeholders, which includes associates, clients and shareholders.

Reese brings extensive experience in financial services to Broadridge. “He is a world-class finance executive whose deep experience across financial services and client-focused mindset make him the ideal choice to lead our finance organization. Edmund has a proven track record of delivering results and creating shareholder value,” Tim Gokey, Chief Executive Officer of Broadridge, said.

Before arriving at Broadridge, Reese will finish his time at American Express where he has spent almost a dozen years, according to his Linkedin profile. Most recently, as Chief Financial Officer in Amex’s Global Consumer Services Group, he has triumphed in the role in New York since April 2019.

Prior to being promoted to CFO, Reese served as Senior Vice President and Head of Investor Relations. Although the role was short, he successfully satisfied the requirements.

Additionally, he served as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer in Amex’s US Consumer Services Group from early 2009. Ultimately, it was Reese that led the US Consumer business forward taking responsibility for several key areas including investments, M&A, product launches, contract negotiations, strategy and operations over the nine-year period.

Also, Merrill Lynch utilised Reese’s skill set when he was recruited as a Director and Chief Financial Officer of Private Banking and US Wealth Management. He spent just over four years with the company in Greater New York.

Further, from January 1997, he held the position of Chief Financial Officer of Corporate Client Group for Smith Barney. He maintained the role for a little over eight years.

Matt Connor to Focus on Global Technology and Operations

The interim CFO at Broadridge, Matt Connor will continue with the previously intended executive role. He will be focusing on its Global Technology and Operations (GTO) leadership team working alongside Reese during the transitional period.

“I would also like to thank Matt for stepping in as Interim CFO. Matt played a critical role in delivering strong first quarter results, which have enabled us to begin to ramp up our planned investments and position us for continued growth,” Gokey added.

Reese said: “I look forward to working with Tim and the rest of the leadership team to continue to move Broadridge forward and generate value for its associates, clients and shareholders.”
