Todd Brown

Todd Brown is the head of new-employee development at Morgan Stanley and based in London, where he leads a global team who design, develop, and deliver onboarding programs across four continents, covering everything from financial fundamentals to advanced modeling and technical skills. Todd re-joined Morgan Stanley in 2005 to lead IT Learning and Development for Europe, and in the last two years his remit has expanded to encompass onboarding for all of MS’s staff globally.

Todd's origins are in the American Midwest, and after studying for his bachelor’s degree in Michigan and Germany, in the mid 1980s he moved to New York to join Morgan Stanley's IT Analyst Programme. His early roles in IT ranged from mainframe development to help desk management to training. He gained an MBA from New York University, and in the early 1990's Todd became a partner in a boutique learning and development firm focused on new-employee development for large financial firms.

Driven by challenge and with a continued interest in Europe, in 1999 Todd grasped the opportunity to move to the UK to start an eBusiness consultancy. Based in London, he subsequently held positions as Chief Information Officer in the marketing and business-process outsourcing industries before returning to Morgan Stanley, where he now encourages his colleagues to GTD.
