Advisor Spotlight: Robin Letchinger


Experts Matter

We have recently gathered together a knowledgeable and amazingly talented group of subject matter experts from information security and technology leadership to family governance and education. 

We are fortunate to call these individuals close advisors. In addition to our Founders' expertise, our advisors' collective knowledge and perspective are woven into everything we do, directly benefiting our clients.

She has made an immediate impact, and we look forward to garnering more of Robin’s sage advice in the coming years.

Robin has years of experience focused on family businesses, family enterprises, and family offices. As general counsel for a multigenerational family holding company with multiple subsidiaries across North America and Australia, Robin developed a keen awareness of the hard and soft issues challenging multigenerational families, providing strategic solutions that balanced business, personal, and tax goals. Previously, she served six years as a member of the company’s board, ultimately chairing its compensation committee.

I am fortunate to be a part of the leafplanner journey, and what I expect will be its impact on every family’s uniquely quintessential information.”
