BlackRock Hosts Panel Discussion and Networking Event for ACP Participants in New York City


On Wednesday, November 4, 2015, more than 60 ACP Protégés attended a Panel Discussion and Networking event at BlackRock in New York City. 

The event was moderated by Matt Anestis, with opening remarks provided by BlackRock’s Vice Chairman Ken Wilson. The panelists included Rich Kushel (Chief Product Officer), Chris Vogel (Head of Global Fixed Income & FX Trading), Lisa Dallmer (COO of Business Operations), Jody Kochansky (Head of Aladdin Product Group), and Woo Fung Kwong (Head of Analytics). The panelists discussed the critical role of technology in Investment Management, as well as insight into what qualities they look for when hiring new talent for BlackRock. 

Afterwards, veteran attendees enjoyed light refreshments while mingling with fellow attendees and BlackRock employees. 

ACP would like to thank Jessica Burt of BlackRock for organizing this incredible event!
