In Loving Memory
Jud Bergman was the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Envestnet, Inc. He was a remarkable leader whose vision, brilliance and drive built the roadmap for our company’s success.
Jud founded Envestnet in 1999 on the premise that technology would change the financial advisor industry. However, he always understood there is an important role for the human advisor—as it is the combination of technology and the advisor that provides the best results for investors.
As the industry evolved, Jud’s vision remained unwavering on enhancing the financial wellbeing of the end investor. Delivering on this promise meant empowering advisors with the capabilities to deliver better financial outcomes and improve the lives of their clients.
Jud’s spirit will forever be the foundation of Envestnet.
