Open-i Advisors (OiA) is happy to announce the promotion of Taylor Tricarico to Managing Partner.

Taylor has the ability to understand the bigger picture and to quickly identify opportunities for improvement and growth for our diverse client base, and Open-i Advisors. Her breadth of skills and experience means she is both a smart strategist and a methodical tactician. A unique hybrid that makes her essential as Open-i Advisors plots their course for expansion.

If you collect, store, process, or handle data containing personally identifiable information (PII) about  persons in the EU, you need to make sure you are compliant. You’ll need to explain what you’re doing with the data you’re collecting, and likely need to change some of your data collection practices.
