Editorial Staff, September 28, 2022


The US wealth management organization has a new chief people officer, replacing a predecessor who has announced her retirement.

Cresset, the US wealth management house, has appointed Adwoa Mograbi as chief people officer. Mograbi is also executive managing director, the firm said in a statement this week.

Mograbi brings more than 20 years of experience in human resources leadership, strategy, and talent management, with an industry focus on banking, capital markets, technology, and high-growth entrepreneurial environments, Cresset said.

Prior to the new role, Mograbi served as chief human resources officer of the Federal Home Loan Banks Office of Finance.

Mograbi is succeeding Mary Ceas, MD of human resources, who earlier this year announced that she plans to retire.

Mograbi has a track record of building and transforming HR operations with a focus on driving change in recruitment/talent acquisition, performance management, employee engagement and retention, training and development, and diversity and inclusion. She earned a bachelor’s degree from McMaster University and an MBA from Ivey Business School at Western University.

Cresset has more than $27 billion in assets under management, as of June 1, 2022. See here and here for other stories about the firm.
