Before assuming the role of Chief Operating Officer of Broadridge, John was Division Co-President of the Brokerage Services Group of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (NYSE: ADP), the business that was spun off by ADP on March 30, 2007 to create Broadridge. In that role, John was the architect of Broadridge's entry into the clearing and outsourcing businesses, which allowed Broadridge to create a new strategy that enables it to offer any brokerage firm, regardless of size, the appropriate range of outsourcing services to best meet its individual needs on one technology platform -- service bureau, full business process outsourcing, or correspondent clearing. Prior to his role as Division President, he was Senior Vice President/COO of ADP's Investor Communication Services Division, now known as Broadridge Investor Communication Solutions.
Commenting on the appointment, Mr. Daly stated, "John is a proven leader in every aspect of the brokerage processing industry -- regulatory, technology and operations. He has a demonstrated record of success in inspiring people and enabling organizations to achieve their full potential. On a more personal note, I have worked with John for many years in multiple capacities and I could not be happier about this well deserved recognition."
