MARCY OLSON: FRIEND, COLLEAGUE, AND TRAILBLAZER FOR WOMEN IN FINANCE
Today is a bittersweet day for the Resolute Capital family – it is the birthday of our dear friend and colleague, Marcy Olson, who passed away suddenly last year. She would have been 57 years old.
In 2005, I had the privilege to begin working with Marcy. Along with her diligence and dedication to her career, she brought a youthful abundance and an inclusive integrity to everyone that she met and worked with.
Marcy was a true trailblazer for women in the financial arena, especially at the executive level. She was a passionate and intelligent leader who was, not only exceptionally talented in her ability to create prosperity for so many others, but was also brilliant in her capacity to navigate a challenging industry with grace and poise. As a talented artist, avid skier and biker, and loving mother, she also set a standard for work/life balance for all of us here at Resolute.
It is these principles which inspired us to create the Marcy Olson Memorial Fund. The Fund’s goal is to support women seeking careers and leadership positions throughout the financial industry by providing resources and opportunities in the form of mentorships, leadership trainings, networking, and a multi-year scholarship for women pursuing a degree in economics, finance or business.
Since inception, the Fund has raised nearly $30,000, and we were able to award our first Marcy Olson Memorial Scholarship to a young woman who, as an artist, athlete, and dedicated student, truly embodies all of the qualities that Marcy exemplified throughout her life.
If you would like to support us in celebrating Marcy’s legacy as a leader in the financial sector, as well as help to provide an opportunity for the next generation of female financial leaders, please visit our donation page and consider making a contribution.
While we miss Marcy everyday, we are proud to have known her, worked with her, and grown as people because of her. Happy Birthday Marcy.
