Kathleen Godfrey, president of Godfrey Financial Associates Inc. of Latham, this morning will ring the opening bell for the New York Stock Exchange.
Godfrey, and others who will join her at the podium, are representing Women in Insurance and Financial Services, the national group of which Godfrey is past president. The organization is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.
“The WIFS is a big part of my professional life,” said Godfrey, who founded her firm in 1995 and now has about $50 million under management. “This organization is responsible, in large part, for my success and tenacity.”
She noted that only about 13 percent of financial advisers are women, so “it can be lonely. There aren’t many role models. It was great to meet these women who could give me advice, who took an interest in my success.”
Godfrey was named president of WIFS in October 2009.
