Highland Welcomes Barbara Myers, CFA

Barbara Myers


We are delighted to introduce you to Barb Myers, our newest consultant at Highland Consulting Associates.

While Barb may be new to Highland, she has over 30 years of experience. She is a pro in the world of investment management, especially in the areas of research, asset allocation and portfolio construction for institutional and individual investors.

In her longstanding role as head of investments and portfolio management of KeyBank’s nonprofit group, Barb managed the bank’s largest institutional accounts, select private clients, and a team of portfolio managers, overseeing more than $5 billion in assets under management. In recent years, Barb expanded her investment responsibilities further to include the bank’s wealth management clients nationwide. As Chief Portfolio Strategist she developed the portfolio construction process for the private bank and managed the team of multi-strategy research analysts.

Barb has joined Highland to apply her experience and know-how doing what she loves most, and that’s “the important work of helping organizations grow their resources to accomplish their objectives and achieve their goals—whatever those may be.”

Barb sees her role as a catalyst, giving lift to the important work of the clients she serves. “I’ve been privileged to witness the amazing work done by so many generous people,” said Barb. “My hope is to positively impact the financial resources of those charitable organizations, corporations, and individuals so they may contribute in greater ways to their communities, the lives of their employees, or the worthy causes to which they’re dedicated.”

We do hope you’ll have the opportunity to meet her. Welcome to Highland, Barb.
