- Former Bank of America Global Wealth Management president Sallie Krawcheck, MBA, owner of Ellevate—a professional women's networking organization committed to economic empowerment—and recognized as the only senior Wall Street executive who reimbursed a portion of client losses for poorly performing products.
- Ann Walsh, CFA®, head of portfolio construction and management at Guggenheim, who oversees more than $100 billion in fixed income investments.
- Justin Paperny, author of Lessons From Prison and Ethics in Motion, a former investment executive who uses his experiences as a federal prisoner to educate others on ethics and the perils associated with white-collar crime.
