50 Most Influential Women in Private Wealth

Congratulations to Pershing LLC's chief executive officer, Lisa Dolly, for being named one of the "50 Most Influential Women in Private Wealth" for 2016 by Private Asset Management (PAM) magazine. The selection, which acknowledges women who are positively impacting the private wealth management industry, was announced in PAM's June 2016 issue.

"I'm honored to have been selected to join this impressive collection of women leaders in the wealth management industry," said Dolly. "This award demonstrates how Pershing is personally invested in its people through the opportunities it provides women to advance their careers and lead teams to help our clients run their businesses more efficiently."

PAM based its selection on nominations, the level of responsibility a female executive has in her firm, her impact on the private wealth space and any other significant roles she has had in her own elevation within the industry.

Dolly is a member of Pershing's executive committee and BNY Mellon's Operating Committee. Over her 25-year career at Pershing, she has held numerous leadership roles prior to becoming Pershing's CEO. She was responsible for the firm's managed investment business and Lockwood Advisors, Inc., managed global operations, and served as chief operating officer overseeing a number of internal and operational functions.

She has served as chairperson of the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) Operations and Technology Steering Committee and has served on cross-industry committees with DTCC. In addition, she volunteers her time with the 30% Club mentoring aspiring professional women.
