Broadridge Financial Solutions, a provider of business intelligence for the asset management industry, announced today that as of January 2, 2019, Tim Gokey will become the Chief Executive Officer of the firm.
Gokey is the current Chief Operating Officer and will be replacing Rich Daly in January. Daly will then take on the role of Executive Chairman of the Board. The firm’s current independent Chairman of the Board, Les Brun, will move to the position of Lead Independent Director.
Commenting on the moves, Brun said: “On behalf of the Board, I am pleased to announce that, as part of a long-planned and well-orchestrated succession process, Tim Gokey will become the next Chief Executive Officer of Broadridge.
Tim has been instrumental in creating and executing strategies that have driven significant growth for Broadridge over the past eight years, and he is the right person to lead Broadridge into the future.
I am also pleased that Rich Daly will remain actively involved as Executive Chairman. Rich founded our Investor Communications business and has been CEO since Broadridge became an independent company in 2007. We’re fortunate to be able to continue to benefit from his deep knowledge and passion.”
