Carla Wigen

Chief Operating Officer

Known for her boundless energy and enthusiasm, Carla is here to make sure LNWM is working for you at all times and in all ways. After a 25-year career that spans every aspect of wealth management, this is how Carla defines success for both LNWM and you: Using all your assets to activate what you want for yourself, your family, and your community.

A trail runner, Carla knows that each life path is unique and knowing where you’re headed is critical. So an important part of her job is helping you answer the big questions: What is most important to us? What do we want to do with our wealth? To do that, she seeks to bring new viewpoints and voices to the table and makes connections that bring about possibilities you may have overlooked or not even realized.

What makes LNWM stand out, she says, is the deep level of care that our team applies to each client relationship. We work hard to understand what it is you want to accomplish, and we use that understanding to inform and guide every decision we make.

“It’s this deep level of care that has allowed LNWM to thrive as a company for more than 50 years. That and our incredible clients make my work a pleasure.”
