A $1.5B-AUM Startup's Chief Passes the Reins, But ...

Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

A $1.5-billion-AUM, eight-ETF startup's chief is passing the reins to a key insider. Yet the founder's staying on, too.

Sylvia M. Jablonski Kampaktsis
Defiance ETFs
CEO, Chief Investment Officer
Yesterday, Matt Bielski confirmed that Sylvia Jablonski Kampaktsis is taking over as CEO of Defiance ETFs [profile]. Yet Jablonski will continue to serve as Defiance ETFs' chief investment officer, too. And Bielski, formerly CEO of Defiance ETFs, will serve as CEO of the thematic ETF shop's parent, Defiance Group Holdings (DGH).

Bielski lauds Jablonski for "her leadership, passion and invaluable experience," describing her as an industry pioneer.

"This is a meaningful next step, not only for the industry but for our firm, as we continue to grow and launch new strategies driven by Sylvia's forward-looking vision, and provide the marketplace with access to disruptive investment themes," Bielski states.

Jablonski joined New York City-based Defiance at the end of 2020 after more than a decade with Direxion, where she rose to managing director of capital markets and institutional strategist. Before that, she worked with Societe Generale and Deutsche Bank. She is an alumna of Fordham University's Graduate School of Business Administration and of Boston College's Carroll School of Management.

Bielski founded Defiance four years ago. He, too, is a Direxion alumnus, and he also worked with BlackRock and ProShares. Bielski attended Johns Hopkins University, Binghampton University, and Bar-Ilan University.
