Pitcairn names Leslie Voth chief executive


The board of directors of family office Pitcairn Company has appointed the firm’s president, Leslie C Voth, as chief executive officer.

Voth (pictured) succeeds Dirk Jungé, who continues as chairman.

Voth, a 19-year veteran of Pitcairn, was instrumental in implementing the firm’s open architecture strategy and has spearheaded several operational changes.

Jungé, a family office industry innovator and leader for 35 years, presided over an era of unprecedented change in the financial markets as well as the Pitcairn business model. He was the driving force behind the transformation of Pitcairn from a single family office into a national, multi-family office 25 years ago.

Jungé says: “Governance and succession planning have been a hallmark of my ongoing advice to the high-net-worth families that we serve. By tapping my close business partner, Leslie Voth, Pitcairn provides for an orderly transition and maximum continuity of our own business going forward. Leslie is without doubt one of the most capable executives serving the family office space.”

Voth says: “I will always value Dirk’s experienced counsel. Our relationship is one of collaboration, dedicated to providing the best possible thinking and service to the families we advise. As CEO, I look forward to a new era of strategic growth, both domestic and global, spurred by the rapidly evolving changes in culture, technology, and communications.”

Voth was appointed to her previous position as president and chief operating officer in 2008, after having been a member of Pitcairn’s senior management team since 1996. She has been directly responsible for overall corporate planning and strategic growth, while overseeing all client relationships. She has played a key role in Pitcairn’s growth including advancement of the firm’s pioneering 100 percent open architecture investment platform, and development of a total wealth management strategy that is now used by the firm’s clients.

Prior to joining Pitcairn, Voth was vice president of the Meritor Financial Group for nine years.
