FAIRFIELD, IA – February 10, 2021 – Cambridge is excited to announce that the firm has received the inaugural 2021 Top Workplace USA award. This award is built on the program’s 14-year history surveying more than 20 million employees across 54 markets for the regional Top Workplaces awards.

“It is an honor for our firm to be recognized for this prestigious award. Through these challenging times, we were able to adapt our organization to be a place where culture excels, and our associates continued to feel appreciated and fulfilled in their roles,” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Amy Webber. “It is rewarding to receive this feedback from our associates, and for that, I am thankful.”

Cambridge employs approximately 900 associates and serves more than 3,700 independent financial professionals and financial advisors nationally. The firm is a multi-year honoree of the Top Workplace1 in Iowa award sponsored by The Des Moines Register and 13-time Broker-Dealer of the Year2 honoree by Investment Advisor magazine.  Most recently, Cambridge announced the opening of new office space in Phoenix, Arizona, and intends to add 50 associates at the location in roles ranging from digital marketing to technology.
