WOMEN CEO REPORT

Abigail Pierrepont Johnson - Fidelity Investments

Abigail Pierrepont Johnson

Fidelity Investments

Finding traditional and non-traditional ways of getting people to choose Fidelity as their choice of financial services has been the Johnson family’s goal since it was founded in 1946 by current CEO Abigail Johnson’s grandfather, Edward Johnson II. Emerging from the shadows of her exemplary father and grandfather, Johnson has been able to distinguish Fidelity to her own satisfaction by pushing the company into the future of financial services one example being cryptocurrency investments. Johnson’s main commitment, which was passed down from her grandfather and father, will always remain actively managing customers’ money. Since 1988, Johnson has been trained to run the privately held company starting as an analyst and portfolio manager she has worked her way up the chain to CEO. Johnson is a committed leader who works hard to develop leadership skills and experiences so she can truly know all the ins and outs of financial services and her fellow colleagues.
