After several years working on the Mortgage Backed Securities sales desk at Goldman Sachs, she switched to the buy-side of the business, spending over 10 years as Director of Marketing for a Chicago-based multi-billion dollar RIA, including launching satellite offices in San Francisco, Dallas and Atlanta. For the past several years, Julie Anne has been consulting to various advisory and fintech firms. She founded Maven Pro Marketing in late 2017, and is delighted to once again be working with former colleagues and building new relationships through this venture.
