Welcoming Interim CEO Katie Squires-Thompson

December 10, 2020

Today the leadership of WCM passes from me to the organization’s Interim CEO, Katie Squires-Thompson. I am intensely proud of how the organization has developed over the last three years and deeply thankful for the commitment of our employees, board members, Advisory Council, sponsors, volunteers and network. Together, the acceleration of diversity across finance has made impressive gains and I have had the privilege to have shared, with all of you, in that journey.

It gives me great pleasure to see Katie Squires-Thompson move into the role as Interim CEO. Katie is well known to many in the WCM network, and has held several senior roles in her seven year tenure with WCM, including Director of Marketing, Director of Western Operations, and Chief Strategy Officer. I have had the pleasure of working closely with Katie over my tenure at WCM and know she will prove an exceptional interim leader.

The WCM community is an incredible one, and I would like to thank each one of you for your support of WCM and our collective commitment to accelerate equity, diversity and inclusion in the industry.
