Jeff Brodsky is a Vice Chairman at Morgan Stanley and a member of the Firm’s Operating Committee and Management Committee. As Vice Chairman, he works directly with the CEO and Board of Directors as a senior advisor on strategic issues related to executive talent, succession, and diversity and inclusion. He also helps lead the Firm’s COVID-19 response, as well as acquisition integration efforts for E*TRADE and Eaton Vance.

In 2011, Jeff was named the Chief Human Resources Officer, and he held that position through early 2021.

Prior to that, since joining Morgan Stanley in 1987, Jeff led HR for many of the Firm’s businesses including Global Wealth Management, Investment Management, the Corporate functions and Discover (before its spin-off).
