Reinvigorating a 30-year-old business model

In this episode I’m talking with Dave Reeve about a tough call he made transitioning his 28-year-old business from a service model to software.

Dave is the CEO of InvestorCOM, a leading compliance technology provider to the wealth management industry. 

Like many other leaders I’ve talked to recently, Covid helped hasten a change that was in the works for some time. Interestingly, it wasn’t making the call that was tough but the implementation of it. What was particularly challenging was managing the difficult conversations with staff that inevitably happen when you transition out of a longstanding pillar of your organization.
