Pete CzyrycaSenior Vice President
Pete started his career as all Communication majors do, as a mutual fund portfolio administrator at State Street. A quick learner, he parlayed that experience into a role as a Compliance Analyst at John Hancock Advisers, earning his Series 6, 7 and 63 licenses, while working alongside the legal and portfolio management teams to ensure that the funds were in compliance with SEC regulations.
While loving the dynamic nature of the financial markets, Pete longed to tie together his five years of financial service experience with the creative side of the business, so he returned to Emerson College to earn his Masters in Journalism.
After spending nearly 12 years at a boutique financial services PR agency, working with clients including a top 10 U.S. bank, equity research firms, dark pools and RIAs, he grew tired of the lengthy commute and joined a leading provider of AI-powered workforce management, execution and communication solutions for retailers and banks, located in the Boston suburbs.
An avid learner with an entrepreneurial spirit, Pete built a PR and analyst relations program for the eight-year-old start-up from scratch, leaving only after the company was acquired a few years later.
A savvy public relations, marketing and branding professional, Pete is adept at creating and communicating stories via compelling plans, delivering measurable results to drive growth and support brands.
When he’s not reading, running or watching sports (go Dayton Flyers, Everton, Pittsburgh Steelers and Penguins), Pete enjoys traveling, Champagne and Red Burgundy and spending time with family.
