As the 2010 Winter Olympics draw near, corporate Calgary gets ready to cash in by sponsoring Olympic hopefuls
They won bronze. Now, they are going for gold. They are the staff at McLean & Partners Wealth Management Ltd., who received bronze medals in 2006 at a company dinner atop Whistler Mountain for reaching $1 billion in assets under management.
And, if the Calgary-based investment management firm hits the $2-billion mark by March 31, 2010, employees will be presented with gold medals at the same spot, but this time where dozens of Olympians proudly stood on the podium just one month earlier for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. And, if all goes well, joining the McLean & Partners’ celebration will be two Canadian Olympic athletes the company has been sponsoring for the past two years.
