- eMoney Advisor's Founder and CEO, Edmond Walters, Stepping Down from Leadership Role
- Durbin, Former President of Fidelity’s RIA Custody Unit, to Oversee Transition
- eMoney Advisor Maintains Commitment to Serving Wide Range of Clients

BOSTON – Fidelity Investments® announced today that it has appointed Michael R. Durbin as interim chief executive officer (CEO) of eMoney Advisor, a leading wealth planning software company, which Fidelity acquired earlier this year. The move follows the decision by eMoney Advisor's founder, Edmond Walters, to step out of his CEO role and leadership position, following 15 years with the company. Durbin will work closely with the extended eMoney Advisor senior leadership team to continue to run it as an independent company, separate from Fidelity.

Durbin will continue to serve as president of Fidelity Wealth Technologies, the organization into which eMoney has been reporting. He is a wealth management industry veteran, having spent six years as president of Fidelity’s registered investment advisor (RIA) custody unit during a time of rapid growth and industry transformation. Prior to that, Durbin held a range of leadership roles during an 18-year tenure with Morgan Stanley.

"Edmond Walters has been a tremendous leader and innovator in founding eMoney Advisor, and making it a success," said Michael Wilens, president, Fidelity Enterprise Services. "To ensure a seamless transition from the founder to the next leader will require a leader of Mike Durbin’s integrity, experience and expertise."

"We remain committed to eMoney Advisor’s mission, which is to revolutionize the way trusted advisors serve the needs of their clients through highly innovative, intuitive and collaborative technology," said Durbin. "That will mean ensuring the eMoney team continues to foster an independent spirit, fierce entrepreneurialism and unrelenting focus on clients. The team is incredibly strong and driven to transform the wealth management industry. That spirit will continue."
