In June 2015, Mike Roberts, IFS’s Managing Director of Financial Services Solutions, passed away after a long battle with leukemia. Mike’s hard work, unshakable optimism and incredible perseverance was demonstrated both through his commitment to IFS and his courageous fight with leukemia.

His storied career in the industry included roles such as the Director of Process Improvement and Chief Administrative Officer for Wachovia Securities and Director of Relationship Management for First Clearing. Because of his unique blend of experience in relationship management, brokerage operations and process improvement, Mike brought a consultative style to the IFS sales cycle.
