Jud Bergman: 'I was a reluctant entrepreneur. There was never an 'aha' moment, just a growing conviction that this was a good thing to do.'

This loss is beyond words. Jud was in fact a visionary. He was also a friend. I will miss him. I didn't know Mary but I wish I had. From all of us at AssetMark our deepest condolences to Jud's and Mary's family as well as all of our friends at Envestnet.

I will never forget how Jud welcomed tru Independence into the Envestnet family. He was warm, engaging and truly cared about people. Truly a hero in our community. Thoughts and prayers to his and Mary's families.

It seemed to me that Jud always looked people in the eyes with a sense of kindness and curiosity. We all knew he was an important man. But his leaning in and subtle smile gave others a sense of being important too. My sympathies for all who mourn this loss. I did not know Mary but from reading this article have a sense that she was a choice person as well.
