A Transformative Experience

Reina Sandler Goes Corporate to Cornerstone

I spent most of my career at a corporate office with 36,000 other people. I was working in insurance in what you might call the quintessential corporate job. Then, in 2017, I joined Cornerstone Wealth and gained an entirely new perspective. It goes without saying that there is a huge difference between a firm with 36,000 people and a firm with fewer than a dozen people. It was a culture shock, not only because of the way Cornerstone did business, but because of the office environment itself. It was a culture shock I very much welcomed. I remember when I was hired, everyone took part in the hiring process in some way. They wanted to make sure I would be a good culture fit and mesh well with the team. It’s a practice a lot of small businesses have adopted. Cornerstone wanted to make sure the team meshed in terms of personality and ethics. It really translates to how they do business with clients. It’s also a process that contributes to the idea of family. Everyone at Cornerstone feels like a member of the family. We each have our quirks and get along so well. This is not something you typically find in the corporate environment, where hiring practices are very different and that feeling of family and camaraderie doesn’t really exist.

Speaking of transformations, I’ve had a few in my own life. Over the past couple of years, I became a mother and got married! So much of my world revolves around my beautiful adopted daughter, Eleanor. She’s approaching 2 years old, and for the past 20 months, she has been my everything. I also got married shortly before adopting her. It’s been a very eventful two years! I love to travel and have been fortunate to visit 28 countries (so far). I already have my next trip planned. Next year, I’m off to Turkey, Egypt, and Israel. I do have to say that Israel is one of my favorite destinations and is very close to my heart — I’ve visited 10 times! There is just so much to appreciate in that corner of the world — the history, the food, the people, and the spirit of the area. With all of these big changes over the last two years, I’m looking forward to what the next couple of years have in store.

Interestingly enough, before I joined the team last year, I learned of the job opening from Amy Constable, who had shared the posting on Facebook. I was looking for a move out of the corporate world, and Cornerstone seemed like it would be a good fit — and I say that as someone who doesn’t have a background in wealth management. of my role as the transformation manager at Cornerstone. I typically work with smaller partner firms that are looking to incorporate the Carson platform. I help walk them through the process from the beginning all the way to full integration. It’s all about a successful transformation from their previous platform to the Carson platform. My background is actually in project management, which is a crucial part
