William J. Stromberg
President & CEO
T. Rowe Price
As a former football player, William Stromberg knows how to make smart decisions and execute them effectively. His flexibility and leadership on the field have transferred well in the financial community where he has served as president and CEO with global asset management firm T. Rowe Price since 2016.
He earned his Master of Business Administration from Dartmouth and joined T. Rowe Price as an equity investment analyst in 1987. Since then, he rose through the ranks, understanding different aspects of the financial firm.
In April, Stromberg will become chairman of the board of directors, adding to his existing role as president and CEO. Under Stromberg’s leadership, the investment firm has been able to continue its annual dividend raise.
“This nomination is really a reflection of the hard work of our talented and dedicated associates, including more than 5,100 in Maryland, who contribute significantly to economic growth, neighborhood vitality, diversity, philanthropy and education throughout the region. I am particularly proud of the role that they play every day in helping investors in Maryland and all over the world to achieve their financial goals,” Stromberg said.
Stromberg is also committed to ensuring T. Rowe Price remains a fixture in Maryland.
“As a firm, we are pleased to have contributed to successful efforts to make Maryland more attractive to business,” Stromberg said. “Looking ahead, we aim to continue performing at the highest levels for our clients and for the communities where we work.”
