SPU Hosts Gloria Nelund, Top Leader in International Asset Management


Gloria Nelund SBE and CIB are pleased to  host Gloria Nelund on February 9 as our guest speaker for "Business as a Calling" day. Ms. Nelund spent 30 years on Wall Street as an executive in the international asset management industry, working most recently as CEO of Deutsche Bank's $50 billion North America Private Wealth Management division. She went on to co-found TriLinc Global, a private investment company dedicated to creating impact investment products that provide significant capital to the "missing middle" (established small to medium sized businesses) in stable, emerging markets to help address some of the world's urgent needs.


During her visit, the CIB will gather senior leaders from the financial services sector for a luncheon with Ms. Nelund to discuss banking and economic reform. That evening, Ms. Nelund will speak on "Faith, Gender, Work: Lessons From My Career" at Westminster Chapel (Bellevue, WA) hosted by Women in the Workplace.
