RMB Capital has been recognized as a 2023 Employer of Choice excellence awardee as part of national financial publication InvestmentNews’ “Women to Watch” awards. This is the second consecutive year that RMB has received the firmwide honor. 

The Employer of Choice recognition is given to financial advisory firms that “commitment to building a workplace that recognizes excellence and supports career growth for all,” according to InvestmentNews. The award will be presented in November at a ceremony in New York. 

“We’ve always prided ourselves on being a firm that is inclusive and provides opportunities for women leaders in an industry that still too often lacks representation,” said Dick Burridge, founding partner and CEO of RMB. “Being honored again by InvestmentNews is validation of our approach as a firm and the amazing work done by everyone at RMB to foster this culture of equal opportunity and support.” 

Four of RMB’s eight current c-suite leaders are women: chief administrative officer Laura Flentye; co-managing director of wealth management Michele Francisco, CFP®; chief marketing officer Amber Hickory; and chief human resources officer Jennifer Rydwelski

As part of the events surrounding the award ceremony, Francisco will be taking part in a panel discussion on the afternoon of Nov. 7 at Tribeca 360 in New York City. The panel is entitled “Paving the Way with Excellence,” and will feature representatives of Employer of Choice awardees who will “discuss strategies that set them apart and are directing their future.” The full list of 2023 “Women to Watch” winners will be published in an upcoming November issue of InvestmentNews.
