In this member highlight, meet Roland Rayment, Consultant at First Republic Bank and Granite Solutions Group, Inc. He is also an advisory board member of CoWorkers member company, CondoGrade.
Roland is no stranger to the Wilmette community. He grew up here before traveling to major cities like San Francisco for financial work. Now he’s a full-time independent financial consultant and finds himself working remotely quite often. Roland used to work from a coffee shop but later found the environment to be too distracting.
CoWorkers appealed to him because Roland wanted to work somewhere he could focus more.
“Much of my job requires phone calls, and CoWorkers provides me with options I can use for private conversations,” Roland said. “CoWorkers also provides me with a friendly community composed of varied backgrounds who can lend advice and opportunities.”
In fact, Roland, has made connections that have led to both personal and professional opportunities, like now being an advisory board member to CoWorkers member company, CondoGrade.
“During my time here I have been introduced to people doing a variety of things,” Roland said. “Meeting new people and getting involved personally and professionally has been good for the soul.”
Fun fact: Roland enjoys doing competitive sailboat racing during the summer months.
