“We were thrilled to hear that Wyatt would be shadowing Patti as our CEO for the Day,” states Director of Communications Bernadette Hunter. “We wanted to make his experience at Key Financial as real and hands on as possible, so that he could leave with a real sense of what his future could hold.” Wyatt’s day was filled with various activities such as signing letters and delegating tasks to employees- he even had his own business card and parking spot!
