Why did you choose to come to work at Balentine?
The working environment at Balentine is reflective of the firm’s core values. We work incredibly hard on behalf of our clients and strive for excellence, but we still manage to balance work with family and community involvement.
What inspires you to come to work each day?
My team is inspiring. I’m also inspired by the environment at the firm; it truly feels like a best place to work.
What are the big issues that Balentine and companies like it need to solve to truly benefit the parties they serve?
Transparency and client education—nothing is so complicated that it can’t be explained in relatable terms. The more our clients understand what we do, the more we can help them achieve their goals, and the better they can objectively assess the kinds of help they receive.
