What I enjoy most about working at GW&K is...
Each day brings new challenges and that energizes me. I work closely with clients, investment professionals, consultants, prospects, strategic partners, and colleagues with the goal of creating the best possible solution for clients. Through these experiences, I have developed many life-long friendships.
