A Message from
Our President and CEO

Debra Hewson By Debra Hewson President and Chief Executive Officer

Hello everyone,

I hope you and your loved ones are keeping well as we enter the fall. With this change in the seasons comes a whole new host of unknowns, but what is certain is that we at Odlum Brown are continuing to work hard for our clients, take care of one another and support the communities where we live and work.

Over the past few months, we have had success with our gradual return to the workplace, and have been able to welcome more team members back to our offices. We are still paying close attention to government and Public Health guidelines, and are confident that we are providing a safe and well-prepared environment for these team members.

At this time, all of our locations remain closed to clients and visitors. Even though we are now able to see more familiar faces around the office with the return of many of our colleagues, we miss having our clients around. Please know that you are always top of mind, and as we continue to put solutions in place for your convenience, your Investment Advisor or Portfolio Manager will keep you updated.

While the COVID-19 situation has gone on longer than most of us would have anticipated, we must acknowledge that it is not over yet. There are still many members of our community who are putting themselves and their families at risk to keep us safe and keep our economy moving. On behalf of Odlum Brown, I offer them my continued gratitude.

We recently paid tribute to our frontline heroes during the annual Easter Seals Drop Zone in Vancouver. As the Presenting Sponsor of this event, in support of Easter Seals BC/Yukon’s essential services, this was a wonderful way to promote a good cause while showing our appreciation for some special contributors in our community (see image above).

I look forward to connecting again as the current situation evolves throughout the fall. Until then, we at Odlum Brown will continue to “be kind, be calm and be safe,” and we hope you will too.

Be well,

Debra A. Hewson
President and Chief Executive Officer
