Joy M. Soodik

Senior Managing Director
Chief Compliance Officer

Clarfeld family office


As a Managing Director and Clarfeld’s Chief Compliance Officer, Joy created the infrastructure that enables the firm to deliver its core commitment to quality client services.

Since joining Clarfeld in 1992, as the number of wealthy family and executive clients grew and the total number of professional staff more than doubled, Joy has remained on top of the ever-evolving demands of this position.

Joy’s extensive responsibilities include SEC compliance and reporting, CPA professional compliance, human resources and administration, risk management, strategic alliances, and mergers and acquisitions development.

Additionally, she is on the firm’s Executive Committee, manages startup operations and provides consulting services to clients.

Joy’s take-charge style, mixed with her warmth and enthusiasm, make her a valued colleague and leader at the firm. She’s also a point of entry for our talent acquisition process.

She is a frequent panelist for Charles Schwab and TD Ameritrade on matters of Compliance, Cyber Security and Human Capital. Because of Joy’s diverse breadth of knowledge, she is often called in to consult with clients on an array of lifestyle support activities, including eldercare transition.

Joy and her wife enjoy spending time with their dogs Lulu and Bebe both in their Chelsea home and at their retreat on Long Island. She is also a fine wine enthusiast and collector.
