A Message from Our President and CEO

Debra Hewson By Debra Hewson President and Chief Executive Officer

To our valued clients,

Amid the current global health crisis, last month we made the difficult decision to close our offices to client meetings and outside visitors, and to transition most of our team members to working remotely. For a firm where our relationships with our clients and with each other are paramount, we did not take these steps lightly, but know they are the right ones to keep the communities where we live and work safe.

I want to reassure you that Odlum Brown is well prepared to tackle the ongoing crisis, and we are here for you. We have a robust business continuity plan in place, including fully functional, secure remote access and firm-wide communications. We are fully operational to meet your needs, and our Investment Advisors and Portfolio Managers continue to be available by phone and email.

In our nearly 100 years as a firm, we at Odlum Brown have experienced and learned from a multitude of global events. Now is the opportunity for us to put those decades of hard-earned resilience to work for you, our clients. As we navigate this evolving pandemic situation, we thank you for your understanding and continued trust, and for joining us in taking steps in your day-to-day lives to mitigate the risk to our collective communities. In the words of our Prime Minister, “If we act now, even if it seems like a big ask, things will be better tomorrow.”

Stay well.
