Emily Ellis Appointed Chief People Officer at DriveWealth

DriveWealth, a leading financial technology platform providing brokerage-as-a-service, has announced the promotions of three members of the company’s senior leadership team, effective immediately. Emily Ellis has been promoted to chief people officer; Jason Pizzorusso will service as president; and Marcus Anthony has been named chief financial officer.  

In their respective new roles, each will take on new responsibilities to further advance DriveWealth’s growth plans and strengthen its value proposition for the firm’s global B2B partners.  

“DriveWealth’s vision to democratize finance relies heavily on the brilliant minds we employ,” says Michael Blaugrund, CEO of DriveWealth. “Emily, Jason, and Marcus have meaningfully contributed to our accelerating growth and leading market position. I’m confident their expertise, intelligence, and commitment to our company’s values will continue to drive us forward in their expanded roles.”  

Joining DriveWealth’s C-suite, Ellis will transition from service as head of people to chief people officer. Bringing extensive experience from organizations like Lyft that successfully matured from a growth stage to public companies, she joined DriveWealth in January 2022. In her newly expanded role, Ellis will continue to lead HR efforts while designing and implementing programs to support the company’s multi-disciplinary workforce. She will report directly to Blaugrund.  

Founded in 2012, DriveWealth’s technology platform allows both established companies and emerging digital-native firms to provide securities trading to their customers simply, efficiently, and in a compliant fashion. In addition to its patented fractional traditing and brokerage-as-a-service API technologies, DriveWealth has a fully featured institutional trading capability that includes order routing, clearing, custody, stock loan, enhanced liquidity, and NYSE Floor execution.
