PROVIDENCE – Maureen Kerrigan, financial adviser in the Providence branch of RBC Wealth Management, has received the firm’s 2019 Gail Winslow Award, which honors women employees in their efforts to attract and support women clients and advisers.

Kerrigan received the award at the firm’s Women’s Association of Financial Advisors annual conference.

The award was established in honor of Gail Winslow, a former RBC Wealth Management financial adviser, who was a trailblazer for 60 years in the financial-services industry. She was known and admired for her personal motto: “Clients come first.”

Tom Sagissor, president of RBC Wealth Management, said Kerrigan’s “contributions to WAFA have helped the group make a difference not just for its members, but also for the overall culture of the firm.”

Kerrigan has served in several positions on the WAFA board. She was president from 2015-2017 and she helped enact several initiatives designed to support women financial advisers at the firm.

Kerrigan and her daughter Courtney Mahoney, also a financial adviser in the Providence branch, were featured as part of RBC Wealth Management’s Your Path video series, a 2017 recruiting initiative to attract more women financial advisers to the firm.
