With over two decades of experience, Arya has been the leader of Shufro Rose’s digital transformation. In conjunction with Shufro Rose’s Solution Provider, Accelerated Information Systems (AIS), Arya’s vision for their Laserfiche solution centers around streamlining and automating their business processes, including their account opening process.

Arya can be heard as a regular speaker at industry conferences such as T3 and the Laserfiche Empower Executive Leadership Summit, in addition to other wealth management operational conferences. Through these engagements Arya seeks to continually improve on the ongoing digital transformation strategy at Shufro Rose, elevating the firm as an industry leader in modern wealth management and as a member of the Laserfiche community.

“It’s been an honor to watch Vib lead the Shufro team through their digital transformation.  His vision for the future of work and his continuous improvement with Laserfiche is a blueprint for other business leaders looking to push the envelope with technology.  I am so proud of Vib and look forward to our continued partnership for excellence.”
