Peer review:

Catherine is one of the most focused branch managers I've come across in my career. She is fiercely loyal to her branch and will defend her employees whenever needed. She has built a top branch in the New York metro area centered around NRC clients despite most of the advisors servicing these clients being based in other markets. There are few as strong as Catherine.
