Kjiersti Cory of the Great Banc Trust Company has a secret talent: Dressage style horse tail braiding! Bret Keisling of Capital Trustees has a not-so-secret talent: Growing a beard!
Since employee ownership is all about putting your talents together to build something greater, they decided to join forces! At #ESOPLV, The ESOP Association's 2018 Las Vegas Conference, Kjiersti will braid Bret's beard dressage style to raise money for Lian Shalala Gravelle's 6 month old twin boys, Charlie and Enzo Gravelle. If we meet our goal of $20K, Bret will wear a My Little Pony Costume and Kjiersti will dress as Rainbow Brite.
And yes, we are serious about this! And to get even more serious for a second: For those who didn't have the pleasure of knowing Lian Shalala Gravelle, Esq., her passing has been a tremendous loss to the ESOP community. She worked at ESOP Plus: Schatz Brown Glassman LLP and Krieg DeVault and was Vice President of The ESOP Association’s New York/New Jersey Chapter.
