“Grayhawk’s vision and mission of ‘Families First’ is what drew me into discussion with them. The integrity of their approach and execution is what lead me to join the team. Having sat at a table with many of Canada’s wealthiest families in the past five years, I understand the issues and opportunities that come with the responsibility of stewarding significant wealth, and I see in Grayhawk the single most comprehensive, independent and objective solution of any in its industry. Grayhawk is a true partner and fierce advocate for its families in their bid to preserve wealth and to grow legacy over generations. I am delighted to have the opportunity to tell the Grayhawk story, confident in the knowledge that it is the very best interests of the families we serve.”
Claire will grow Grayhawk by continuing to build relationships with families and by enhancing Grayhawk’s value proposition.
