The resources that we bring to each client is second to none in the industry. I look forward to continuing to provide the highest level of service to our clients and the industry in general. 2020 has been one of the most challenging times of a generation and I could not be prouder of every member of the Foresight team. The strength and resilience they have shown in supporting our clients and the profession has been second to none.” added Chris.

With Chris assuming the role of providing guidance and support to the Foresight team to allow for best-in-class business solutions to our clients, it will allow for Dan to be able to focus his efforts on both existing and future client relationships. “Just as our clients have had to change the way they operate due to the pandemic and other changes in the profession, we as a firm need to as well. This succession plan allows me to focus more on the expansion of our client base for the future”, Isard said.

Doug Gober stated, “As we further expand the reach of The Foresight Companies’ offer, we have a person with the perfect set of skills to accomplish our growth objectives. Chris has adopted a structured body of knowledge and linked it with experience to help us be successful.”
