Since joining Greenspring Wealth Management in 2010, operations manager Laura Stoner has helped implement processes to manage ongoing compliance requirements, streamlined the hiring and onboarding process of all employees, and helped develop the firm’s investment reporting system.
Fun Fact: Prior to joining Greenspring, Stoner was a supervisor in the retail sales department at T. Rowe Price.
Stoner conducts monthly one-on-one meetings with each team member, discussing how she can help them be more successful. “I am very proud to be a coach and mentor,” she says. “I enjoy highlighting the achievement of my team and will advocate for them, while continuing to demand excellence from them.” Stoner served on the Greenspring Grant Committee in 2012, developing the process for marketing the firm’s grant program, creating the application process and analyzing grant requests. The committee awarded $10,000 in grants that year.
Greenspring partner and managing director Patrick Collins says Stoner seeks to improve herself and the company. “She took it upon herself to understand the desired outcomes, and where she knew she needed development, she sought to learn it,” he says. “To a firm owner, this is an invaluable trait, as we have total confidence that she will research, investigate and ultimately perform the work.”
