Marden has more than 30 years’ experience in asset servicing and related industries, including with Cambridge Associates, State Street and BNY Mellon.
- Laura Ghaemian has transitioned to Digital Solutions Consulting as a senior consultant. Based in London, Ghaemian has worked at Northern Trust for 16 years, previously as a relationship manager within the consultant relations team where she managed key relationships with third-party consultants and advisers to Northern Trust clients based in EMEA.
