Head of Retirement Plan Services, Aimee DeCamillo is also a vice president for T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. DeCamillo is a dynamic leader who is responsible for the growth and management of the company’s institutional retirement business, representing more than 3,500 companies and over $150 billion in assets under administration. Prior to assuming her current position in 2014, she was head of product and marketing for Retirement Plan Services.
DeCamillo serves on the board of The SPARK Institute, the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) and the Howard Hospital Foundation, and chairs the LIMRA LOMA Secure Retirement Institute. She is also a founding member of the Women’s Roundtable at T. Rowe Price and holds the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor designation.
Considering her 20-year career, DeCamillo finds many things to celebrate. “Watching employees grow and advance, helping turn a business around, leading the integration of retirement platforms for two major organizations post-acquisition and launching new products into the market are just a few of the things I’m proud of,” she recalls.
“But one of my most meaningful accomplishments occurred two years ago. Every quarter, I talk to middle school students about financial literacy and the importance of saving. After one such presentation, a mother stopped my husband at the bus stop. She said that after my class, her daughter announced that she wanted to pursue a career in financial services. Her story reminded me how important it is for us to share our knowledge to inspire others,” observes DeCamillo.
DeCamillo offers this advice to women starting their careers: “First, have confidence in yourself to pursue your dreams, and let people know what those dreams are. Second, don’t be afraid to step sideways or backwards to get there – it’s not always a linear path. Third, give back. We all need role models and support systems; paying it forward is so important.”
