Having studied engineering management at Columbia University, Connor was drawn to BlackRock because its dual nature appealed to his dueling interests in finance and technology. Joining immediately after graduation, Connor was instantly impressed by the profound thought leadership at the company. He also loved the firm's global focus, which was evidenced by his orientation class—which drew over 350 participants from across the globe.
After eight months working in NYC, Connor volunteered to be among a cohort of associates beefing up BlackRock’s San Francisco outpost. Enjoying great autonomy in SF as a Regional Manager, Connor still partakes in morning meetings with his counterparts in NYC and around the globe as they find solutions to benefit the Aladdin Client Community.
