July 1, 2009 DALLAS, TX. – True North Advisors recently hired a Chief Operating Officer to handle the day-to-day business affairs of the firm.
“Mark and I need to spend more time outside the office, meeting with people and telling them the True North story. We believe we have something quite unique to offer, and we need to make sure people know we can help. Our firm has gotten large enough that a hiring a dedicated Chief Operating Officer is the right next move.”
“Vic is the perfect fit with us (founders) and our leadership team,” says Mark Gehlbach, True North Founder/Principal. “He brings a much needed skill set to the team.”
Vic Esclamado, True North’s new COO as of July, 2009, moved to Dallas from Charlotte, N.C., where he most recently served as President of Open Finance Network (OFN). OFN provided an integrated platform of technology and service solutions for wealth managers, of which True North was a client.
“I had the chance to get to know Scott and Mark and the True North team as a vendor to them for two years prior to joining them,” says Esclamado. “It’s a great opportunity to work with a successful team that is so committed to clients and the highest standards of excellence in everything they do.”
