Marks the second consecutive year Churchill has received this prestigious distinction
New York, December 13, 2022 – Churchill Asset Management LLC (“Churchill”), an investment-specialist of Nuveen that provides customized financing solutions to U.S. middle market-focused private equity sponsors and their portfolio companies, was recognized today among the 2022 “Best Places to Work in Money Management” by Pensions & Investments (P&I) magazine.
Presented by Pensions & Investments, the global news source of money management, the annual survey and recognition program is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the industry.
“Making this prestigious list for the second consecutive year is an incredible honor, and it is very gratifying to receive such positive feedback from our employees on the culture we work hard every day to foster at Churchill,” said Ken Kencel, President & Chief Executive Officer of Churchill. “Cultivating a workplace of inclusivity and transparency in which all employees contribute their unique talents and skills allows us to provide innovative ideas and solutions to our clients. I couldn’t be more proud of our team and the unique, purpose-driven culture we have built together.”
P&I partnered with Best Companies Group, a research firm specializing in identifying great places to work, to conduct a two-part survey process of employers and their employees. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second portion was an employee survey to measure the employee experience.
Churchill employee responses highlighted the firm’s highly inclusive culture, learning and development programs, strong benefits and volunteer opportunities, among other strengths.
“As their employees attest, the companies named to this year’s Best Places to Work list demonstrate a commitment to building and maintaining a strong workplace culture,’’ said P&I Executive Editor Julie Tatge. “Even as firms grappled with volatile markets and stresses from the pandemic, their employees said they felt strong support from their managers, enabling them to do their best work.’’
“Pensions & Investments is proud to honor the Best Places to Work in Money Management for the 11th year. A strong workplace culture that supports talent, advocates progress and drives innovation is paramount to driving the best outcomes and these asset managers demonstrate that. Congratulations to the 2022 honorees for fostering healthy and inclusive workplaces in the face of a rapidly evolving and challenging market,” said Chief Operating Officer, Nikki Pirrello.
