BERWYN, PA—July 19, 2022—Envestnet today announced it has appointed Ron Ransom to be Group Head of its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) office, a newly created role bringing a centralized focus to ESG activities across Envestnet. Mr. Ransom will report directly to Dawn Newsome, Chief Business Operations Officer for Envestnet. As Group Head of ESG, Mr. Ransom will lead firm-wide efforts developing programs and policies to support Envestnet’s corporate ESG efforts. The ESG office will focus on building strong relationships in the communities in which Envestnet operates and seek opportunities in which Envestnet can lead the industry.   

“There has never been a more important time to strengthen our focus on ESG throughout our organization and make this area a central part of our financial wellness ecosystem. The work we do as a company is grounded in making a positive impact on people’s financial lives—through delivering the tools that advisors need to enable their clients to experience an Intelligent Financial Life™,” said Bill Crager, Co-Founder and CEO of Envestnet. “I am incredibly proud of this work, and our longstanding commitment.
