Peter Zuleba has officially succeeded the retiring Gordon Fowler as CEO of Glenmede, a privately held and independently owned investment and wealth management firm with a heavy presence in New Jersey, following the announcement of succession plans in November 2022.
Zuleba, who assumed the role of president in January and will maintain this position, brings extensive experience in institutional investing, private client relationship management, endowment and foundation management, technology and corporate leadership to the CEO position.
“Since our founding nearly 70 years ago, Glenmede has been a firm with an unparalleled commitment to the ongoing success of our clients, employees and communities, and to building enduring and impactful relationships,” Zuleba said. “I’m excited to lead a company that understands and prioritizes its responsibility to its stakeholders. We strive every day to deliver exceptional outcomes to our clients, and we continuously work on initiatives that further enhance the client and employee experience, build enduring relationships and showcase our thought leadership as an independent investment and wealth management firm.”
Zuleba joined the Philadelphia-based firm in 2004 as a senior portfolio manager and director of equity research. His accomplishments include growing the Glenmede investment management business, expanding Glenmede’s distinctive sustainable and impact investing capability and leading the firm’s initial diversity, equity & inclusion efforts.
“Peter and I have partnered on numerous growth efforts over the years, and I’m confident he’s the right person to succeed me and drive further success for our firm,” Fowler said. “He is a seasoned leader with deep experience in all facets of our business, and he will no doubt continue to deliver strong outcomes for our clients, employees and communities alike.”
