Regina Sullivan/Fidelity International

Regina Sullivan is the head of Shared Services at Fidelity International, a position she has held since 2013. She obtained her B.A. from Boston College, a J.D. from Suffolk University Law School, and a risk management certificate from the Wharton Executive Education Program.

Regina notes that in 2015 Fidelity International, which has operated in Ireland since 2000, “announced the creation of a global shared services structure which now focuses on technology solutions and investment and fund operations across the Fidelity International organization. Dublin is a key location for this Global Shared Services function,” she says.

Fidelity International will also open a new state of the art office situated in George’s Quay, Dublin, in the summer of 2016. This new office, according to Regina, will “become an important location for shared services and associated activities over time.”

Regina celebrates the “history, depth, perseverance and sense of humor” that comes with her Irish ancestry, and believes that courage, humility, a sense of humor, and resiliency are key elements in making a good leader. She would also like to see more “intentional and deliberate inclusion” of women in the workplace.
