Key Executives

Lawrence Calcano, Chairman & CEO


Lawrence is Chairman and CEO of iCapital. He began advising and working with iCapital shortly after its 2013 founding, leading key strategic and business development initiatives, before joining full time as CEO in early 2014. Since then, he has led the rapid growth – both organic and through acquisition – of iCapital, building it into a leading global Fintech company.


Jason Broder, Managing Director & Chief Product Officer


Jason Broder is a Managing Director and Chief Product Officer at iCapital. He is responsible for iCapital’s comprehensive product and platform roadmap and set of technology offerings. He is a member of the Firm’s Management Committee.


For more than ten years, Jason’s career has been dedicated to the notion that uniting cutting-edge technology with the expertise of industry leaders would empower advisors to better serve their clients. He previously served as the Chief Executive Officer of SIMON Markets LLC, a financial technology company acquired by iCapital in August 2022. Recognizing an industry-wide gap in the education and life cycle management of structured investment products, Jason spearheaded the creation of the SIMON platform in 2012 from the Structured Investments desk at Goldman Sachs. He was responsible for the development and rollout of the platform for the six years leading up to SIMON’s formation as an independent company—and multi-issuer platform—in 2018.


Chriss Piazza, Managing Director & Chief Technology Officer


Chris is Chief Technology Officer at iCapital, where he manages all software development and technology. He is also a member of the company’s Operating Committee. He has over 20 years of technology experience, having most recently served as CTO for PINCHme.com, where he delivered a high-volume consumer platform for the targeted delivery of consumer packaged goods products. Prior to PINCHme, he was the fifth employee and CTO of OneWire, where he built the product and technology teams and produced the first-ever SaaS online recruiting solution focused on the financial services market. His earlier achievements include both start-ups and established companies, among them the development of a SaaS procurement platform delivered to Fortune 200 clients and co-founding a digital agency, which grew to 80 employees.
