Broadridge Financial Solutions has announced that Tim Gokey, currently Broadridge’s president and chief operating officer, will take on the mantle of CEO, effective January 2 when Rich Daly, the current CEO, becomes executive chairman of its board.
Gokey joined Broadridge in 2010 and was named chief operating officer in 2012. He became president in August 2017. Prior to joining the company, he was president of the retail tax business at H&R Block. He also held positions at McKinsey and Company including leading the financial services sales and marketing practice for North America.
The company noted in a statement that Gokey was responsible for its expansion through investments and acquisitions.
Daly, CEO since 2007, will take the reins of the board from Les Brun, who will transition to lead independent director.
“Tim Gokey is one of the most committed and capable leaders in Fintech,” Daly said in the statement. “He has a proven track record and has been an invaluable partner as together we have transformed Broadridge into a leading global Fintech company. He led the turnaround of our global technology operations business and is the primary architect of the long-term growth strategy we presented last December at our Investor Day. He has a deep understanding of our clients and has been a champion of our corporate culture and values. I am confident that Tim will build on our strong momentum in the marketplace and lead Broadridge to its next phase of growth.”
