From aerospace to printing to asset management, Copperleaf’s CEO Judi Hess has always worked to transform industries through technology to create more value for clients.

In this article from the May 2017 Issue of The Institute of Asset Management’s quarterly publication Assets, Judi sat down to share:

  • Her career path
  • Her career highlights so far
  • Her perspective on being a CEO in the dynamic asset management industry
  • How she thrives on change

In the Q&A, Judi was asked, “Can you point to any significant breakthroughs or achievements?” She answered:

“When you look at asset management today, that’s where we’re sitting: on a breakthrough, a transformation point where we’re going to move to the next level of performance. When I first started at Copperleaf, almost every client’s response was “we don’t have the data”. Seven years later, it’s “we have so much data we don’t know what to do with it”. We’re now at a point where, even if a company doesn’t yet have the right data in the right form, they can see that they can work to make better use of it as time goes on – to start small and grow bigger.”

When asked about the key to successful asset management, Judi responded:

“Value is the key to everything. Whenever in my career I’ve looked at how we can create more value, that’s been the key to success. It’s no different in asset management. The world understands now that asset management is not just about risk or reliability or condition, it’s about the value that can be created. So you start with value. Figure out how to realise the highest value from your assets, and you can propel your organisation towards its goals.”
