Armstrong Wolfe manages and develops its global Advisor network on a continuing basis:
To support our iCOOC members needs and our advisors’ career objectives, we operate with an understanding our advisor services are offered on an interim basis – should our clients wish to hire our advisors on a permanent basis, we actively support this transition.
Advisors are either transitioning between permanent roles or have committed themselves to a second career in an advisory or consulting capacity.
Advisors are given affiliate individual iCOOC membership, allowing them to attend select forums and symposiums and receive AW articles and periodicals.
Advisors generally are brought in by invitation or referral, and interviewed for skillset matches with Armstrong Wolfe Advisory’s areas of focus.
Advisors may also be appointed as Armstrong Wolfe Business Advisors, supporting Armstrong Wolfe’s working groups and other fora, providing content and direction, and participating in product development.
Our approach to managing and supporting our advisors ensures they are kept relevant and up to date on market demands, subjects, and dynamics.
