Envestnet CEO Jud Bergman, wife Mary Miller-Bergman killed in car accident

A Chicago CEO and his wife were killed when a boozed-up wrong-way driver struck the taxi they were riding in, according to reports.

Judson Bergman, 62, who was at the helm of the Envestnet firm, and his wife, Mary Miller-Bergman, 57, died when Emilie Ross, 34, rammed her Volkswagen sedan into their cab in San Francisco, the California Highway Patrol said.

Bergman was thrown from the taxi, authorities said. Cabbie Berkant Ramadan Ahmed, 42, also was killed.

Bergman, who also served as Envestnet’s chairman, founded the company in 1999 and fueled a wave of independent financial advisers, Crain’s Chicago Business reported.

In a statement, Envestnet called Bergman “a remarkable leader whose vision, brilliance and drive built the foundation for Envestnet’s success.”

“On behalf of our board of directors, management team and employees, we extend our deepest sympathies to Jud and Mary’s family,” the company said in a statement.
