O’Brien will report to Michael Durbin, who had been serving as interim CEO of eMoney and remains president of Fidelity Wealth Technologies.
The emphasis on technology makes sense, given the turbulent environment that's reshaping the FinTech industry. Startups are coming from all directions, and established players such as Vanguard Group are taking different approaches.
O’Brien served most recently as senior vice president and head of platform technology for Fidelity Institutional, supporting advisors in various roles at Fidelity over a 30-year career.
Founder Edmond Walters resigned last year, a few months after Fidelity's acquisition of eMoney Advisor.
