Greg looks back at his upbringing, his early job history, and why he ultimately came to–and stayed at–Vanguard.

“Although I never thought of pursuing Vanguard as an employer, I was curious about their trading floor and Vanguard’s approach to investment management. I started researching the markets and the investment side of the insurance industry. I had no idea I was planning my future career.”


We celebrated Father’s Day with this story about how three things drove a crew member to start a book club with his daughter.

Schuyler reveals why she loves being a working mom at Vanguard and how she was supported during maternity leave.

“I love my job and I wouldn’t trade it for the world, in fact, I would go as far to say I love being a working mom. There is no secret formula to create a balance or even a magic number of how much time should be spent at home vs. work. Instead, it is all about flexibility.”

Anne-Marie, a US Air Force veteran, shares how she made the transition from boots to suits, and how her military experience prepared her for a career at Vanguard.

“At Vanguard, as in the military, leaders are expected to prioritize their people. I learned very early on that if you take care of your people, they will take care of you. Vanguard does an exceptional job of prioritizing and committing resources to crew development—and the results of that focus are crystal clear to me each and every day.”
