Chief Talent Officer
Any human resources professional will tell you that choosing the right candidate for the right role is a critical component to the job. But Shannon O’Toole, chief talent officer for BAM Advisor Services, believes that how you develop an associate once they are on your team is equally as important.
And that’s what she finds most gratifying about her role at the firm. Shannon helps BAM ALLIANCE member firms put the right amount of resources into associate development, working with them to make sure associates have the appropriate leadership, feedback, engagement and mentorship they need to succeed. Shannon feels this is beneficial not just to member firms, but also for the professional and personal development of their employees. She takes pride in preserving the collaborative culture that has made The BAM ALLIANCE unique.
Prior to joining BAM Advisor Services, Shannon served as the director of recruiting for Renaissance Financial Corporation. She holds a bachelor’s degree in consumer and family economics from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
Shannon sits on the Board of Directors for Annie’s Hope – The Center for Grieving Kids and is active with Our Little Haven, the American Youth Foundation and her children’s school and church community. She is also on the University of Missouri–Columbia Personal Financial Planning Department’s Board of Advisors. She is a past recipient of the prestigious 40 Under 40 award from the St. Louis Business Journal.
A St. Louis native, Shannon currently resides in Kirkwood, Mo., with her family.
