Our #SoaringToSuccess continues this summer with Justin Porrett ’19. Justin is an accounting and finance double major currently working as a private wealth management intern at Laidlaw & Company. This experience is preparing Justin for a career in investment banking.

Let’s learn more from Justin….

Under the mentorship from Brian Robertson and other experienced brokers at the company, I have learned how to successfully prospect and communicate with executives from some of the top companies in the world. I use different techniques while sourcing to find potential candidates that would be great clients at Laidlaw & Company. This experience will help me in my future endeavors, as it has enhanced my communication skills and has advanced my knowledge in the markets. I am grateful for the opportunity that I have been given at Laidlaw and cannot wait to see what other doors open as a result of this experience.

Interning at Laidlaw & Company this summer has provided me with the necessary skills and resources for a future career in investment banking. I cannot thank them enough for giving me the opportunity to learn from some of the most knowledgeable people in the industry.
