IN MEMORIAM - Jud Bergman Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (1957-2019)
It is with immeasurable sadness that we share the news that Jud Bergman, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, passed away as the result of a terrible car accident on Thursday, Oct. 3. His wife, Mary Miller, also sadly perished in this tragedy. As Envestnet’s founder, Jud was a remarkable leader whose vision, brilliance and drive built the foundation for Envestnet’s success.
Jud founded Envestnet in 1999 on the premise that technology would change the financial advisor industry. However, he always understood there was an important role for the human advisor—it was the combination of technology and the human advisor that provided the best result for the investor. As the industry evolved, Jud’s vision grew, but he was always focused on the end result for the investor, which was enhancing financial wellness and helping advisors drive better financial outcomes and improve lives.
We extend our most heartfelt condolences to Jud and Mary’s family. Our thoughts are with them at this most difficult time. Jud’s spirit will forever be the foundation of Envestnet.
