I am saddened today at the news of the passing of Jud Bergman and his wife Mary Miller-Bergman in a tragic car accident in San Francisco. 

Jud was an early innovator in the consumer-permissioned financial data space and helped build Envestnet into what it is today serving thousands of financial advisors and millions of consumers. He was committed to a vision of delivering better intelligence to consumers to improve their lives and provide better outcomes. Jud’s passion and zest for life will be greatly missed by all who had the opportunity to associate with him and the company he founded.

At Finicity, we had the opportunity to work with Jud on industry-wide initiatives such as the Financial Data Exchange to help provide a better future for consumers and their data. We are truly sorry for the loss and our heartfelt condolences and prayers go to his family, friends and everyone at Envestnet in this time of grief.
