Caitlyn Baird is our Office Manager at Common Wealth. Like so many Canadians in the wake of the global pandemic, Caitlyn reevaluated her long-term financial security. Inspired by the extraordinary work Common Wealth is implementing in the retirement savings industry, Caitlyn joined the Common Wealth team in November 2020.
Caitlyn comes from a hospitality background, graduating from George Brown College in 2013 as Valedictorian. She was also nominated for Hotelier’s Institute Top 30 Under 30 in 2013 and 2016. Caitlyn currently sits on the board of alumni at George Brown College and mentors young adults who are looking to transition out of school and into the workforce.
In her previous role as Internal Events/Office manager at a visual marketing tech start-up, CrowdRiff, Caitlyn played an integral role in building a company culture that was transparent, diverse, and inclusive. While at CrowdRiff, Caitlyn’s contributions led directly to the company being named one of Canada’s Top 100 Small & Medium Employers in 2019 and listed on the Best Workplaces for Women.
Having lived in Jasper, Alberta, and Melbourne Australia, Caitlyn is an avid globetrotter. When she is not travelling, she can be found testing out a new recipe in her kitchen, or taking her pug, Penny Lane, for a walk.
