Cambridge CEO Amy Webber Named CEO of the Year by WealthManagement.com

Webber was recognized in the Broker-Dealers (1,000 Advisors or More) category

FAIRFIELD, IA – September 13, 2022 — Cambridge is pleased to announce that CEO Amy Webber was named CEO of the Year in the Broker-Dealers (1,000 Advisors or More) category at WealthManagement.com’s 2022 Industry Awards ceremony, which was held in New York City on September 8. This year, 105 awards were presented to 84 companies and executives from a pool of 225 finalists. In June, Webber was named a finalist in the CEO of the Year category.

“I am extremely honored to receive this recognition. While organizations need strong leadership, behind every successful group is a strong culture, dedicated team of people, and a passion for service,” Webber said. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with many talented and dedicated people, and learn from amazing mentors like Eric Schwartz. I love being part of this industry and helping others achieve success and fulfillment in their independent journeys. As I like to say, ‘We are stronger when united.’”
