I approach my role first and foremost as a business partnership and consulting relationship with my clients. I work closely to understand their needs, goals, and risk appetite to structure a solution to the issue at hand. I’m honored that many clients have trusted me with their work for more than two decades, and I enjoy leveraging my experience and the collective knowledge of our team to identify the best business solutions to meet client needs.
