2008 40 Under Forty: Michelle Morneau

Michelle Morneau

Age: 39

Title: Director, Segment Management

Company: Fidelity Investments

Company location: Providence, RI

Residence: Worcester

Career highlights:

Right now I work at Fidelity Investments as a director of segment management where I am responsible for the development and customer experience for our wealth management customers. I have been at Fidelity for about 17 years starting out in the mutual fund pricing business line then moving throughout product development and then customer marketing efforts focused on helping people prepare for retirement.

Community involvement:

I feel it’s important to be involved with the community where you live — you can see your efforts firsthand. Volunteering provides me an opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people and do something good for where I live.

Right now I am involved in a few local organizations: director of the Worcester/Boston Colon Cancer Alliance, co-director of the Downtown Women’s Club in Worcester and a member of the Worcester Art Museum Member’s Council. In the past I have also support the Leukemia Society and Team in Training by raising money and participating in the Anchorage marathon.

Biggest professional success:

Outside of work, I have been very fortunate to already have lived out a dream by visiting all seven continents. Just last year, an expedition to Antarctica with two friends became the trip of a lifetime.

Dream job:

I have a few dream jobs …. I could see myself either owning my own cooking or wine business or being a travel and food writer/photographer.

Business person you admire most:

I tend to admire men and women who have built their own businesses as the entrepreneurial spirit is exciting and helps to inspire others. If I had to narrow it down to a few, Oprah Winfrey would be part of that group, as she is business savvy but also actively involved in the community and is a role model to many young women.

If you weren’t doing the job you’re doing now, what would you do?

That would be easy and all my friends know this: I would be out travelling the world. There is so much to see and explore.
