Grayhawk is the culmination of all my experiences both personally and professionally. The ability to work with such a dedicated and talented team in the pursuit of making meaningful contributions to successful families is the most exciting and rewarding work I could ever imagine doing.
Working over the years with many successful Canadian families, I became increasingly aware that they were not being exposed to the kind of planning that could deliver enhanced results. While they had access to many opportunities, they weren’t always being given proper advice aligned to their unique needs. I believe nurturing relationships through open dialogue that uncovers individual needs, goals, and aspirations is key to clients understanding the strategic advice we offer, and essential for them to communicate with us so we can align our interests to create resilient portfolios.
Michael Kaumeyer as Founder and Co-CEO of Grayhawk works with successful Canadian families and foundations to bring them exceptional support in growing their legacy. Michael believes that each family and foundation brings distinctive values and challenges to the table. By having a deep understanding of what those are along with their financial aspirations, Grayhawk can provide extraordinary solutions for legacy management.
Michael is passionate about the links between food and human connections, and the quality of relationships fostered over mealtimes. Since 2014 his 7K Ranch has focused its social mission on food insecurity. In 2014 Michael founded Harvest Moon, an annual event featuring local food, music and community raising awareness and funds for Community Food Centres Canada.
Michael’s community involvement has included being a Calgary Reads Champion, a former board member of Shawnigan Lake School, Leighton Art Centre, Social Venture Partners and Decidedly Jazz Danceworks.
Michael sees his work at Grayhawk as a culmination of his professional and personal lives which include his wife Deborah and his two sons Max and Louis.
