BOSTON, MASS. — (MAY 18, 2016) — Boston Private, a leading provider of fully integrated wealth management, trust and private banking services, announced today that Bert Jacobs, co-founder and CEO of The Life is Good Company, will be the keynote speaker at its third annual Private Partnership Conference. The conference is a three-day event tailored specifically for private partnership CFOs, general counsel and managing partners from across the country.
The conference will take place June 15-17 at Cape Cod's Wequassett Resort and Golf Club. Registration and session details are now available at www.bostonprivate.com.
Bert and his brother John embody the spirit of entrepreneurship and commitment to a cause. The duo turned their passion for art into a business, spending five years selling their wares in the streets and from their van before landing on the three words that would forever change the apparel industry: “life is good.” The Life is Good Company is now a $100 million lifestyle brand dedicated to spreading the power of optimism. The company donates 10 percent of its net profits to help children in need. To date, the company has donated over $11 million, principally through Life is Good products, events and community fundraising efforts.
“Bert is an inspiring entrepreneur and speaker, and we’re thrilled to welcome him to this year’s conference,” said George Schwartz, president of Boston Private Bank. “His passion, story and insight will undoubtedly be well received by conference guests and help this year’s event be an even more engaging, informative and actionable experience.”
The Private Partnership Conference brings attendees from across the country together to network in an intimate setting. Guests can participate in both small group roundtable discussions and larger general sessions to discuss best practices, current trends and issues affecting the industry. Select roundtable discussions will qualify for continuing professional education (CPE) credit. Concurrent sessions will be held throughout the conference, giving participants the opportunity to participate in interactive discussions on a variety of topics, including:
- Professional Development: Developing Talent
