Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc.(NYSE:BR) today announced that Julie Taylor has been appointed chief human resources officer (CHRO) and member of Broadridge’s executive committee. Taylor succeeds Laura Matlin, who has served as acting CHRO for the past year. Matlin will return to her legal duties as deputy general counsel and will assume the newly-created role of chief governance officer, also serving on the company’s executive committee.
Taylor will report to Richard J. Daly, president and chief executive officer, and lead all aspects of human resources globally at Broadridge, including talent acquisition, organizational development, training, compensation and benefits. The company employs approximately 7,400 associates in 14 countries. Taylor brings over 20 years of human resources experience, most recently as chief human resources officer at Pall Corporation, a global supplier of filtration, separations and purification products with more than 10,000 employees. She previously served as vice president of human resources for U.S. pharmaceuticals at Bristol-Myers Squibb, and in various human resources roles at General Electric Company, where she had a 13-year tenure, and at Merck & Co., Inc., where she began her career.
In her new role as chief governance officer, Laura Matlin will report to Daly, working closely with Broadridge’s board of directors and representing the company’s leadership on corporate governance issues. In addition to serving as acting CHRO for the past year, Matlin has served as the company’s associate general counsel, chief privacy officer and assistant corporate secretary. She joined Broadridge in 2007, when it was spun out of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP). Previously, she was assistant general counsel in ADP’s brokerage services group.
“The addition of Julie to our team underscores our commitment to recruiting talented professionals, who will enhance our standing as both a leader and an employer of choice in our industry,” said Daly. “I am grateful for the extraordinary leadership and critical business judgment Laura has demonstrated as acting CHRO, and I look forward to her growing contributions and leadership in the newly-formed role of chief governance officer.”
