Word on the street is that Abacus is a place where individual personalities can step out, step up and shine. Allison is certainly a bright example.

This youngest of four, aunt to eleven (so far) nieces and nephews, is her family’s self-proclaimed event planner. There is not a holiday or reunion or trip where Allison is not at the top of the organizational chart. She has the energy – and the heart – to get it done. (See why she’s such a perfect fit for Abacus.)

“This is far from my first experience working with a financial institution. But I never imagined a culture like this one. In my opinion (sorry guys), I think much of the credit goes to our being a woman-founded company. You can just feel the openness, the support, the collaborative spirit. That’s great for us – and even better for our clients.”
