Value in Sharing and Celebrating Success

Weekly company meetings allow us to share our best ideas with our home office coworkers and our wholesalers located across the U.S. Communicating in a group setting allows us to share successes, ask for help and learn from each other. 

Collaboration and coordination between departments enable team members to learn the different aspects that make our company run efficiently and appreciate each other’s efforts. Each person is encouraged to be an active team member, which allows everyone to take personal responsibility for their work. 

“When we launched Pacer ETFs in 2015 we were a small company where employees would wear multiple hats. We have been fortunate over the last several years to have experienced great growth and momentum in our team and business. This is a direct result of the ideas and efforts each member of the team has brought to the table,” shared the president of Pacer ETF Distributors, Sean O’Hara, “We feel a great deal of pride in what we have accomplished together.”

Home in Chester County

Located 30 minutes outside of Philadelphia, Pacer’s home office is on a beautiful 13-acre campus in Malvern, PA. While some companies have transitioned to operating virtually, we see the importance of an in-person work setting. We find that face-to-face interactions cultivate camaraderie among our employees in ways that a computer screen could not replicate. 

Being a Philadelphia area-based company, we take our pride in our city and sports into the office by wearing Phillies, Sixers and Eagles jerseys on Fridays, allowing all of our employees to represent their team pride!

Just as we value the importance of hard work, we also value the importance of creating genuine relationships with one another. When we achieve significant milestones, we like to take the opportunity to celebrate together. From having Joe and Sean grill burgers to having a potluck party, we find these activities important for establishing good morale around the office. 

Lastly, we feel the greatest strength of Pacer is the environment established, that allows for every employee’s voice to be heard and valued by the leadership. At the home office, every door is open, enabling employees to witness leadership’s dedication and providing them access to their abundance of knowledge and expertise. Management recognizes without the right people and culture; the company would never reach its goals and success. Our company culture, embraced by our employees, underscores our firm’s commitment to delivering diversified and impactful solutions to financial advisors with investors’ goals in mind.
