“I left a highly lucrative production role with a large portfolio of clients to transition into the first rungs of leadership,” Sarchett said. “I could have chosen to remain a producer, continuing to find great individual success, but I saw joining leadership as a challenge I couldn’t pass up. I didn’t know where it would go or how it might work out. I’d never led people before, but I was drawn to the challenge and opportunity to help others grow, develop and be successful.”
