As the first Hispanic board chair, he made it his mission to bring diversity of perspective and ideas to the board. Matt will be an equally strong chair due to his knowledge of the technology, workforce, regulatory, global and other issues middle market executives are facing. I’m looking forward to working with Matt in his new role.”
“I’m honored to follow in the footsteps of Sergio, and build on the tremendous work that he and other former chairs have set into motion,” said Bradvica. “And, I’m looking forward to working more closely with our senior management team, which brings longevity and consistent focus to execute our strategy to be the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders globally.
