Professional Capital Services, LLC (PCS) announced today that industry icon Edmond Walters has joined the firm’s Board of Directors and Rishi Chaturvedi, an 18-year veteran in the technology industry, has joined the firm’s executive team as Chief Technology Officer.
Walters is the founder and former CEO of eMoney Advisor, an industry leading financial planning software platform for advisors which was acquired by Fidelity Investments in 2015. Throughout his career, Walters has been synonymous with bringing ground-breaking technology to advisors in the financial services industry.
“Edmond Walters is a pioneer in delivering proven technology that makes doing business easier for advisors,” said Mark Klein, CEO of PCS. “He was FinTech before it was called FinTech; he’s always looking at new ways to bring forward-looking technology to the advisor/client relationship.

“PCS is one of the nation's fastest growing retirement plan recordkeepers, and my goal is to help them employ technology even more effectively than they already are,” Walters said. “Advisors need innovative tools to serve their clients, and PCS is poised to take the reins in this space and drive the industry forward.”
Prior to joining PCS, Chaturvedi was Managing Director, Digital & Analytical Services at Anexinet. A holder of two U.S. patents, he has designed and led global rollouts of strategic enterprise level platforms throughout his career. In 2014, Chaturvedi was honored with an American Financial Technology Award for best mobile strategy initiative.
"Our ability to grow and expand our client base lies firmly in the technology and tools we provide advisors,” added Klein. “Both Edmond’s and Rishi’s extensive technology expertise and innovative approach will add tremendous value for PCS, the financial advisors and plan sponsors we work with, as well as plan participants.”
