We are grateful to be in position to continue building our team, and we’re thrilled to have skilled veterans like Zach and Juliette join us at Grandeur Peak.

Grandeur Peak Global Advisors announced the addition of two more seasoned professionals to the Grandeur Peak Team. Zach Larkin has joined the firm as a Senior Research Analyst and Juliette Campbell as Manager of Trading & Operations.

Zach Larkin, MBA, comes to Grandeur Peak as a Senior Research Analyst from Stephens where he was a Senior Research Analyst covering the Applied and Resource Technology sector. Prior to Stephens, Mr. Larkin spent six years at Wasatch Advisors where he was a Senior Equity Analyst. Mr. Larkin is fluent in Spanish and holds a B.A. in Accounting and an MBA with an emphasis in Finance and Corporate Strategy.

Juliette Campbell joins Grandeur Peak as Manager, Trading & Operations from Adidas where she was a financial analyst. Prior to Adidas, Ms. Campbell spent four years on the operations team at Wasatch Advisors where she was the Senior International Trade Analyst. Ms. Campbell graduated Cum Laude with a B.A. in Finance from Westminster College.

On the additions, Robert Gardiner, CEO, said “we are grateful to be in position to continue building our team, and we’re thrilled to have skilled veterans like Zach and Juliette join us at Grandeur Peak. We expect to soft close our two initial funds shortly, but we ultimately plan to have six or seven strategies in the global small/micro cap arena. Adding depth to our senior research and operations teams puts us in stronger position as we expand our product line-up. Zach is the seventh member of our senior research team. We may grow this team to around ten members over time, but we intend to remain a boutique firm with a small enough team to be able to discuss our investments together.”
