Favorite Part of the Job: The most gratifying part of my current role is working with people that genuinely care about the future of their organization and being able to leverage the amazing knowledge of the CGS network to listen and provide actionable guidance that moves our clients effectively toward their vision.
Why I joined CGS: I joined CGS Advisors because it provided me an opportunity to work with a progressive leadership team and a group of individuals that have created culture where innovation, collaboration and growth is not just lip service, it’s something that is internally promoted, nurtured and lived on a daily basis. Waking up knowing that your voice is EXPECTED to be heard and that your ideas have real value not only to your specific client, but to the CGS team and to the entire CGS portfolio, creates an inspiring and exciting environment.
