As Spire’s Executive Assistant, Kelsey Hazelwood will be providing high-level executive, administrative, and organizational support to Spire’s Managing Principal, ultimately allowing the firm to seamlessly live its values and reach its goals. She will be conducting necessary client research, preparing in-depth reports and presentations, handling confidential information requests, and managing multiple Executives’ schedules, including the coordination of meetings, events, and domestic and international travel arrangements.
