This past May I celebrated my 41st year at Bessemer. I began my career as the Internal Auditor and during my time at Bessemer headed up various back-office operational groups of Bessemer (including Bessemer’s domestic and international custody operations and money movement operations)together with the Human Resources department. When I joined Bessemer we had approximately 150 employees in 3 locations (New York, Newark, and Palm Beach) today we employ approximately 800 employees in 19 locations including London & Cayman Islands and Bessemer has approximately $97.5 billion of assets under supervision for approximately 2,200 clients  . Consequently, I reluctantly relinquished by operational responsibilities approximately ten years ago to focus entirely on Human Resources matters. I am still, however, involved with operational matters when my help/knowledge is needed.
