Greg Laughlin, MBA

Shareholder, Client Advisor


Greg Laughlin joined Meristem in 2012; and as he describes, found a place where he could put his intellect for the analytical to use and combine it with the ability to make a real and lasting impact on individual client lives.

At Meristem Greg is provided the opportunity to help others become successful. He does this by understanding their complete and complex financial situations. First as an associate, then senior associate, next client advisor and more recently Shareholder Greg has demonstrated and achieved consistent excellence in advising clients and colleagues. Greg loves solving clients’ complex financial “puzzles” and helping to put them at ease with his I’ve-got-this personality.

Thanks to an upbringing that emphasized hard work, honesty, teamwork and kindness. Greg’s character begins with nature and nurture but develops with the choices he’s made. Upon his 2009 graduation from college, many applications were submitted, and an offer returned from a large bank in telesales for credit cards and loans. He quickly concluded, “I am no good at cold calling.” We’re thankful that decision led him to Meristem where Greg’s expertise shines in the relationships he’s built with Meristem clients and colleagues.
