Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 55 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.



Wellington Management views data as a critical asset that needs to be effectively managed to allow us to continually exceed the investment and service expectations of our clients. It is an important goal that our clients and employees be able to readily access and utilize our critical data. The Firm has made the strategic decision to create a Chief Data Officer position and collect responsibility for data under one single, senior, accountable person. We are seeking an experienced Chief Data Officer to develop and implement a multi-faceted data strategy that will transform Wellington to be data-driven across all of our processes and enable our data science teams, automation initiatives, and operational efficiency objectives. Key components of the strategy will be expected to include people, process, standards and technology for data architecture, data lifecycle management, data sourcing, data analytics and governance.

While the Firm's use of data has historically been somewhat fragmented and compartmentalized, the Chief Data Officer, with full support of Wellington's cross-platform leadership teams, will establish strategic alignment and cohesion moving forward. Significant collaboration and influencing skills will be required to engage senior management and stakeholders from multiple levels of the Firm to align, drive adoption and deliver on the vision. The Chief Data Officer will work collaboratively with various internal working groups and stakeholders, including the Chief Information Security Officer, Global Data Privacy Officer, Investment Data Science team, Information Technology and the Knowledge Management office.

  • Data Strategy

Strategy will encompass the design, implementation and technology for data management and governance, including data acquisition, data maintenance, analytics and insights, and reporting.

  • Data Catalyst

  • Data Sourcing

  • Data Operations
  • Oversee a team responsible for managing critical firm data.
  • Industry Network
