Our Talented Team
The AllBackoffice team is a wonderful mix of incredibly smart people with diverse skills who enjoy working together and are the foundation of our company.

Prior to founding AllBackoffice Consulting, he worked with Schwab Performance Technologies, B-Ready Outsourcing Solutions (OFN, then Envestnet) and Etelligent Consulting (later Schwab PortfolioServices). Julien remains focused on helping advisors push the envelope of efficiency and productivity using creative innovations in technology.

Julien’s vision for AllBackoffice Consulting is to provide advisors with an independent, trusted technology partner to assist in operational and technology selection, configuration and ongoing management support with continuous operational evolution as the goal.
