We would like to congratulate Bernard Garrah on winning Skylight’s prestigious 2014 Gold Associate of the Year.  The award recognizes Bernard’s tremendous performance over the last year - earning him top spot for his outstanding growth in production, overall business operation, unrivalled dedication to the firm and his own professional and personal growth.

Bernard’s passion to help people plan appropriately to secure their future is evident in everything he does.  He often says that his favorite part of the job is being able to hear what his clients want to accomplish, then problem-solve, present solutions and see the results.  One of his greatest strengths, is his ability to quarterback for his clients by making sure all advisors are communicating and working together to see the client’s total financial picture.
