A seasoned mutual fund back office executive is retiring from the industry after more than thirty years in financial services.
Last month, Kathy Stelter
— a seven year-long operations and mutual funds specialist at Minneapolis-based Thrivent
— retired from the company.
A Thrivent spokesperson writes to MFWire
, "Kathy served as vice president of operations development and mutual fund operations at the time for her retirement in May of 2022."
Stelter joined Thrivent in 2014 after a year with Hartford Funds
as a director in mutual fund shareholder services.
On LinkedIn, Stelter writes
, "It's time to celebrate! After 30+ years working in financial services, with amazing people and wonderful friends ... I will be retired."
"I am so thankful for the opportunities I have been offered, blessed by the friendships and relationships I have had and excited for my next chapter," Stelter continues.
She adds, "This isn't goodbye, it's time to enjoy life and try some other things. Thank you to everyone who has played a role in my success! Love and hugs to all of you!"
Prior to joining both Thrivent and Hartford Funds, Stelter was with Hartford Life for just shy of five years, first as a director in retail product services for Hartford Life Global Operations and Technology, then as a director in operations compliance and wealth management operations. From 2001 to 2008, she was with The Hartford as an assistant director in mutual fund services, then as a director in mutual fund and 529 services. For five years before that, she was in contacts and accounts for the Fortis Financial Group. Stelter is an alumna of Augsburg University.
