Winner of the 2014 volunteer of the year award RBC Wealth Management- U.S. recently recognized Brad Fisher, director of the firm’s Tri-Cities branch, as the recipient of its Dick McFarland Volunteer of the Year Award. Each year, RBC Foundation-USA recognizes one employee with the Dick McFarland Volunteer of the Year Award for outstanding volunteer commitment and community service.
“Brad has not only made individual contributions to his community, but also has motivated others in his branch to take service to another level,” said Richard Sorenson, Portland complex director. “He is dedicated to helping the firm continue to grow as a trusted partner of the Tri-Cities communities.”
Last year, Fisher volunteered with six different nonprofit and civic organizations – the Advisory Council of Washington State University Tri-Cities; the board of directors of the Tri-City Development Council; Tri-Cities Evolution, a local governance task force; SIFMA Foundation, where he was an InvestWrite essay competition judge; United Way of Benton and Franklin Counties, where he was branch coordinator; and the Children’s Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia.
The issue of children’s literacy is important to Fisher. He has volunteered with the Children’s Reading Foundation for more than seven years, and in the past has served on the organization’s board. He is currently helping to develop a future national event for the organization that would bring together advocates, parents, politicians, educators, authors and more to support the cause.
