Our Team

After being offered a company package, Bill retired from the oil and gas industry. What to do with that package was the question, and we chose to work with Chris Thiessen of IG Private Wealth Management. Chris has been our financial planner these 15 years, and we worked with him to put together a long-term plan that worked for our goals. Chris caters to our wishes that he not bug us too often, and visits us in person once or twice a year as he loves coming to our town to get out of the big city once in a while. Chris is always eager to show us different financial options as we change "wishes and dreams" during each stage of our lives, and we are now working on the "what do we do when we hit 65" plan. Chris has kept us on track all these years and we are very grateful for our long-term business and personal relationship
