Allison has been combining business and technology expertise to lead transformative change from start-up companies through large organizations. Her adventures have crossed multiple industries and continents, in the areas of organizational design, process optimization, infrastructure and technology implementations for the last 20+ years. She has spent most of the last decade at ATB Investor Services as the Head of Transformation and Technology to lead initiatives that transformed the organization into a $12 billion firm. This led to her current adventure as Chief Operating Officer for Grayhawk Investment Strategies Inc, founded in 2014 to provide chief investment officer services for Canada’s wealthiest families to live the life they want to live while leaving a legacy.
Her overall experience includes oil & gas, utilities, telecom, and hospitality which led to the development of her overall approach to transformation. Allison has created and implemented a change methodology that focuses on the importance of discovery and design as the keys to a successful implementation.
Allison started her educational journey in social work at the University of Calgary and is a committed lifelong learner with her latest certification obtained in July through the PROSCI change management course. In her spare time, Allison can be found outdoors – golfing with her husband, skiing with her family, or hiking with her dogs.
