Providence advisor recognized at WAFA conference
MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (November 8, 2019) – RBC Wealth Management’s Maureen Kerrigan, a financial advisor in the Providence, R.I. branch, recently received the firm’s 2019 Gail Winslow Award. The honor recognizes women at the firm who demonstrate exemplary efforts to help attract, support and retain women clients and financial advisors. Kerrigan was presented the award at the firm’s Women’s Association of Financial Advisor’s (WAFA) annual conference.
“Maureen has been a leader and champion for women at RBC Wealth Management-U.S. for many years,” said Tom Sagissor, the firm’s president. “Her many contributions to WAFA have helped the group make a difference not just for its members, but also for the overall culture of the firm. She is well-deserving of this honor.”
Kerrigan has been involved with WAFA for many years, and has served in several positions on the group’s board. From 2015-2017 she served as the group’s president, where she helped to enact several initiatives designed to support women in financial advisor roles at the firm.
Kerrigan and her daughter Courtney Mahoney, also a financial advisor in the Providence branch, were featured as part of RBC Wealth Management’s Your Path video series, a 2017 recruiting initiative to attract more women into financial advisor roles at the firm.
The WAFA Gail Winslow Award was established in honor of Gail Winslow, a former RBC Wealth Management financial advisor, who was a trailblazer for 60 years in the financial services industry. She led many financial advisors and clients to paths of opportunity and success through her motto “clients come first.”
