    • Overview of Segall Bryant & Hamill’s history and services
    • We hear Phil and Paul’s background, including Phil’s start with the firm in 1995 when SBH was in its startup phase and how Paul has honed his skills from his days at Allstate to joining SBH 8 years ago
    • How SBH’s growth required investments in their infrastructure and professional management, which led to Paul’s COO role allowing him to free up more of Phil’s time and increase organizational scalability
    • Their views on culture, including Phil’s take that culture is a “living, breathing, organism you can’t fabricate”
    • How our guests manage change in their larger-than-average firm
