Noreen Beaman


Noreen Beaman is a Founding Partner and CEO of Brinker Capital. Founded in 1987, Brinker Capital is a privately held investment management company offering a range of financial solutions that give advisors the flexibility they need to meet the changing needs of clients.

Noreen’s career trajectory is unique, especially in today’s business climate. It's built upon three decades and five distinct roles with the same company, beginning in 1989 as CFO. At each turn, she was instrumental in Brinker’s growth, and fostering her own, culminating in her appointment as CEO in 2012.

After her time as CFO, she was Regional Director of Sales. In this role, she gained insight into analyzing the needs of clients as they navigate their continually changing financial needs brought on by economic, career, and familial events. In 2005, as Executive VP of Strategic Planning, Noreen charted Brinker’s strategic future, developing a broader business strategy, while also overseeing major operational, financial, and strategic decisions. Next, as COO, she built upon her previous roles to develop long-term planning initiatives and manage day to day operations across all areas of the company.

Inspired by her daughter’s ideas on workplace equality, Noreen began to work with organizations that championed equality and diversity. She was on the Board of the Envestnet Institute Women in Wealth, a program that educates and empowers women to achieve success in wealth management. She also works to promote equality as a member of and mentor for the Money Management Institute’s Leadership Pathway. This initiative connects younger members with industry professionals to build their knowledge of the investment advisory industry. Noreen is often a featured speaker and writer on the topics of women in the workplace, equality, and diversity.

Noreen has received many accolades, including the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Most Admired CEO and EY Entrepreneur of the Year for Greater Philadelphia.
