"During my time as National Chair, the Collins Barrow network saw
significant growth through the addition of member firms. We also
expanded service offerings in specialty areas and deepened marketplace
recognition of the brand," says Dean, past National Chair and Partner
at Collins Barrow Calgary. "Reaching beyond the national borders, we
formed an alliance with Baker Tilly International to further assist
clients expanding overseas by providing access to the highest quality
resources and knowledge in the global marketplace."
The result was increased revenues year over year and clients who were
prepared to withstand economic turbulence based on the quality advice
they received from the experts at Collins Barrow.
"I'm honoured to stand by our accomplishments to date. In passing the
torch to Dan, I am confident that he will continue to energize and
enrich the Collins Barrow network," adds Dean.

Barrow Sudbury-Nipissing in 1994. Based out of the firm's North Bay

into new markets. We are continuing to attract like-minded firms to the
network to support its ongoing success, growth and long-term
sustainability," says Dan. "As a result of Collins Barrow's structure,
we are uniquely positioned to enable member firms to retain their
independence and autonomy while benefitting from a proven governance
framework and economies of scale."
"To deliver the strengths and expertise of the full network to client
relationships, a great deal of collaboration occurs between member
firms. Deep expertise that exists within the network is communicated
across our offices to ensure that it is available to clients where and
when it is needed. In my role as National Chair, I will be working to
increase this collaboration even further to bolster internal knowledge
building and specialty skills sharing so that clients receive the very
best advice and service on every engagement."
"Collins Barrow is the mid-market leader because we combine the
personalized attention of a boutique firm with access to the best
resources that can only be made available by a vast network," says Dan.

certainly look forward to serving as National Chair as we embark on
this period of growth."
