Family is central to everything I do outside of Grayhawk and Grayhawk provides me the opportunity to bring that passion and purpose to what I do every day professionally. As a parent to three young adults, I understand the importance and accountability of creating intergenerational transfer of both values and wealth. It is rewarding to be able to help other families build and continue their legacy across the generations.
Allison Comeau is the Family Office Lead acting as the integrator of the Grayhawk pillars by leading a talented, aligned team and creating processes and technology to deliver a differential experience. Allison believes that informing her decisions with integrity is what is most important in life and work as it is the key to creating and maintaining trust. It is important that the work she does every day is adding value personally and professionally. Allison has always been fascinated by the stories of the families she meets and the relationships she builds with them are meaningful.
Allison has been leading transformative change across large organizations and start-ups alike. Her many adventures intersect across industries and continents to give her both a deep understanding and an unbiased approach to organizational design, process optimization, infrastructure, and technology implementations.
Having experience in oil and gas, utilities, telecom, and hospitality shaped her approach to transformation that focuses on the importance of discovery and design. It is this approach that provided her with the opportunity to lead the transformation of an Alberta-based wealth management firm from its early build days into a profitable line of business.
Allison began her educational journey at the University of Calgary studying social work and is a lifelong learner with her latest certification through the PROSCI change management course. Allison is mom to three young adults and three dogs, wife of an avid golfer who she aspires to beat at golf by the time they retire, and enjoys all family time, live music, and hockey. Allison is incredibly passionate about making a difference in the community and works with many local charities in Calgary including Highbanks Society.
