“With a strong work ethic and a talented team of professionals behind you, one can accomplish anything – which I have experienced firsthand. I’ve always lived by the idea to do right by your colleagues and clients, and a trusted relationship will follow along to a bright future. When you find a place that cares about you, you naturally care about it and it becomes a second home that you want to build bigger and better. I’m fortunate to have found that place, and am looking forward to my new role as Director at the firm,” Hansen said.
