CHICAGO, Sept. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Envestnet, Inc. (NYSE: ENV) today announced it has partnered with wealth management industry thought leader Suzanne Siracuse to launch The Big Reveal Podcast Series.
In this new limited series, Ms. Siracuse, the former CEO and Publisher of InvestmentNews, plans to bring personal interviews with big-name industry innovators, influencers, and leaders to life, with a twist. That twist references the title of the series, which centers around asking guests to "reveal" something about themselves for the first time publicly. The podcast's lively discussions will not only focus on the subjects' personal and professional journeys, but also incorporate their perspectives on news items, hot topics, and industry trends.
"Financial advisors are increasingly turning to podcasts for news, information, and valuable thought leadership. There are a wide variety of relevant industry focused podcasts out there now, but our goal is to make this series unique by emphasizing the more human side of the discussion," said Suzanne Siracuse, CEO of Suzanne Siracuse Consulting Services, and Creator and Host of The Big Reveal Podcast Series. "I want to dive deeper with my guests and find out what moments, decisions, and mindsets shaped who they are today. We will also bring out their vision and hope for where the industry is headed."
The series will kick-off September 30, 2020, as Ms. Siracuse sits down, virtually, with Envestnet Co-Founder and CEO Bill Crager to hear his insights on topics ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic's overall impact on the industry and its resulting innovation to his take on the recent M&A activity and his journey to becoming the CEO. Listeners will also find out what Mr. Crager would be doing if he did not co create Envestnet and hear his Big Reveal.
