RBC Global Citizen Award 2019

Joe Romero was awarded RBC’s 2019 Global Citizen Award for his work in his community through the Kiwanis Club of Corrales.  As a Global Citizen recipient, Joe will travel in April to Kenya to work hand in hand with the Maasai to work on a sustainable community project with the Me to We organization.  The award celebrates RBC colleagues who are leaders in their community, who personify RBC’s collective ambition and leadership model, and who are active volunteers both inside and outside the firm.
