Most Powerful Women in Finance: No. 17, AllianceBernstein's Kate Burke
By Rebecca Stropoli
Chief Operating Officer and Head of Bernstein Private Wealth
After taking on the role of chief operating officer at AllianceBernstein last year, Kate Burke focused on ensuring transparency and accountability among senior leadership at the firm.
Her efforts led to the development of “scorecards” for firm leaders, which evaluated not only investment and business performance but also employee engagement, corporate culture, and diversity and inclusion. The program has fostered a more unified environment as well as increased engagement and professional development within leadership ranks.
