Chief Executive Officer

We are pleased to announce that, effective October 1, 2018, Markus Sleuwen has been named as Strategic’s Chief Compliance Officer. Markus has been with the firm since 2009, initially in the role of General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, and more recently also as Executive Vice-President. The compliance responsibilities are a natural extension of his current roles. You can learn more about Markus by clicking on the following link to his biography on SFG’s website: Markus Sleuwen. Markus is excited about this new role, and looks forward to serving the firm in this additional capacity. Markus will be assuming most of the day to day compliance activities of a healthy firm. Also, as many of you are already aware, he will be supported in his efforts by Sandee Dudash as Compliance Assistant. 

Strategic’s past Chief Compliance Officer, Susan Kuczera, is transitioning into retirement, but will continue to support Markus and Strategic as Compliance Manager over the next several years. Her day to day operational responsibilities are being transitioned to Alyssa Wheeling, VP - Operations. Susan will also continue to work on and support billing for PMR clients.  Strategic is grateful for Susan’s hard work over the last six years managing the firm’s compliance function and is very pleased that Susan will continue to support Strategic for several years during her transition into retirement. 

Please extend your congratulations to Markus on his new role!
