12 Jan Lynn Higgins Appointed Head of Operations
Leede Jones Gable has hired Lynn Higgins to head up its operations team. The firm has recently grown significantly in both size and complexity, increasing the demands on many areas of the business, including operations.
To deliver the level of service that its advisors and clients require, and to improve the working environment for its staff, Leede sought someone with a track record of success in a similar environment – a growing independent full-service investment dealer with operations in multiple locations.
Leede believes it has found the right person. Starting at an entry-level cage position at Canarim (now Canaccord) almost 30 years ago, Lynn worked her way up to the position of Senior VP, Securities Operations. She has been where Leede was two years ago, where it is now, and where it hopes to be.
CFO Robb Hindson says, “Lynn’s resume attests to the breadth of her experience and accomplishments, and meeting her in person quickly demonstrates her energy, warm personality, genuine enthusiasm for the industry, and absolute commitment to both client service and developing and supporting staff.”
Leede is pleased to welcome Lynn Higgins to the firm. Operations is a critical component of its business, and the firm has a very capable and hard-working operations team whose contributions to the firm’s accomplishments have been significant.
CEO Jim Dale adds, “I am very pleased to add Lynn to our management team. We are committed to delivering the best possible service experience to our clients and our investment advisors. Lynn’s knowledge of the back office operations of our industry will be invaluable as we continue to grow our business.”
