"Greenleaf Trust was established 19 years ago as a privately held boutique wealth management firm that was built on the premise that clients should always come first, employees second, and shareholders last. Greenleaf does not have proprietary products, and is structured in a way so that we can never be bought or sold. A client centered culture is at our core, coupled with a deep commitment to not only take care of our clients, but our colleagues and the communities in which we live, eat, work, and play.
To that end we created an event in the Eastern Market at the Wasserman Art Project, with food served and prepared by Kate Williams, and with a talk by the President of the Eastern Market Corporation – Dan Carmody.
All of this was undertaken under the watchful eye of Haley Lertola of Detroit Cultivated. Our goal was to showcase our community with locally driven expertise, and we were thrilled with the outcome. Seventy five guests enjoyed a remarkable experience all orchestrated by Haley. From the imaginative locally sourced flower arrangements, table settings, flatware and dishes, to the local eclectic and inspiring music, to the incredible food; our evening was a great success. We were thrilled with Haley and her team and especially her attention to the details of the evening, and the patience and imagination she showed in creating a “wow” for our guests. We will absolutely engage Haley and her team for other events for Greenleaf Trust."
