“Always put yourself in the clients’ shoes. It provides a more balanced perspective.”
We grew Cascadia on these foundational elements and the integrity of the business decisions that tie them together. When the owner of a business decides to raise significant capital or sell it entirely, it is a life-changing event for him and it deserves our full respect.
I never tire of learning new things – from others, experiences or books. It keeps a person humble and fresh. I’m naturally gregarious, so I also enjoy the personal elements of my work.
It sounds trite, but I want to leave things better than I found them. In the case of Cascadia, we have worked hard to build a firm that is durable and will have a positive impact on our region and the companies we serve. I think of each mandate as a step forward for both the company and people that run them. I strive to make sure we measurably improve the shareholder value of every client we work with.
