SSN appoints chief information officer


Securities Service Network (SSN), an independent broker-dealer and registered investment adviser, has appointed Joe Simpson to the newly-created position of chief information officer. 

SSN is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services.
Wade Wilkinson, president and CEO of SSN, says: “We congratulate Joe Simpson on his richly-deserved promotion to his new position as chief information officer. Joe’s thorough understanding of the independent retail financial advice industry, combined with his in-depth knowledge of the diverse and growing technological needs of our organisation, has been invaluable to us and the financial advisors we serve."
Formerly vice president of technology for SSN, Simpson will continue to head all of SSN’s technology efforts and will represent SSN on Ladenburg Thalmann and industry technology-related committees.
Simpson first joined SSN’s Technology department in 1999 and progressed through a series of positions at SSN, including assistant vice president of technology, and later, vice president of technology.
Simpson says: “I’m thrilled to be named to this new position and an enhanced level of strategic responsibility at SSN. My years at SSN have been intellectually stimulating and deeply satisfying as the complexity of the technological needs of our industry and our financial advisors have markedly increased. I look forward to continuing to serve SSN in delivering the best possible solutions to the advisers we're privileged to support."
Wilkinson says: "Joe Simpson's promotion reflects fifteen years of significant contributions to our firm, as well as our team's belief in the pivotal role that technology strategy will play in our organisation's future.  I'm privileged to work with Joe and his colleagues on our senior management team, who together comprise a deep bench of industry leaders that care, above all else, about driving the long-term success of the financial advisers we serve."
