Ms. Robinson said the following, "The total package Steward represents, including their core values, places it squarely on the cutting edge of the most dynamic and progressive sector of the financial services industry." Ms. Robinson continued, "While the model is clearly evolutionary, less obvious but equally compelling, is the sense of purpose and culture instilled by a very talented and experienced leadership team. Their commitment and dedication to each other, their advisors and their clients is very impressive and critical in today's world of high-finance."
Mike Maurer, Steward's CEO, says, "We are thrilled and excited to have Janet join our board. Her list of accomplishments is amazing and her character is truly inspiring. Her strong values and extensive experience compliments and strengthens our board immensely."

Scott Curtis, President of Raymond James Financial Services, Steward Partners Global Advisory's broker/dealer adds, "Steward's record of attracting talented advisors and board members isn't a surprise. Their leadership team's experience and commitment to a culture of caring paired with the breadth and depth of Raymond James' resources is a powerful combination."
