CEO and president, The Pierce Group
Paige Pierce jumped into the industry in her early twenties when she co-founded a specialized bond auction house with her father, an industry veteran. It was an intensely educational experience, enabling her to develop expertise in guiding companies in getting off the ground and adapting to changing market conditions.
Nowadays, as CEO and president of the Pierce Group and executive vice president of Larimer Capital Corp., Ms. Pierce consults broker-dealers and investment advisers on regulatory compliance, operations, startup and turnaround.
Outside of her paid work, Ms. Pierce has developed a particular competency for small-firm advocacy, culminating with her election in 2018 to the FINRA board of governors.
“I see advocacy as my purpose and passion,” she said. “I want to be a part of creating a world where women know there’s no job they can’t do and no room you can’t walk into and hold your own.
Advocacy has helped me do that and be a role model to others.”
