Artwork depicts a day-in-the-life of Wall Street

MINNEAPOLIS (April 21, 2008) In June 2007, AlisonCompany selected Kelli Nemer, a long-time friend of Alison Stauber, to do a Wall Street inspired painting. Kelli and Alison traveled to New York City to give Kelli first-hand experience of a typical day on Wall Street.

Six months later, Kelli presented AlisonCompany with an incredible, unique piece of art entitled, Wall Street. A true mixed media work of art, Wall Street is made up of acrylic paint, newsprint, paper and oil pastels. Alison proudly presents placed candidates and clients with a print of the original painting in appreciation of their partnership with AlisonCompany.

Kelli Nemer is a talented artist who describes her style as a “mix of representational and abstract ideas that come together by the use of bold outlines, vibrant colors and mixed media.” To learn more about Kelli Nemer’s art, please visit


AlisonCompany Named Corporate Sponsor of Comer Courage Foundation

Foundation created in the memory of former AlisonCompany client and friend

MINNEAPOLIS (April 21, 2008) AlisonCompany was recently named a corporate sponsor of the Comer Courage Foundation, an organization established in honor of Patrick Comer by his good friend Chris Fiacco. The foundation’s mission is to seek ways to ease the tremendous emotional and financial burden on those faced with cancer and to promote greater overall awareness of the disease.

Alison Stauber placed wholesaler Patrick Comer at MainStay Investments in 2005, knowing that it would be a perfect match for both parties. Patrick made an immediate impact on the ailing territory and quickly become one of MainStay’s top wholesalers. Pat was a huge win for the company. Unfortunately, after only six months on the job, Pat was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After a valiant fight, Patrick lost his battle with cancer on March 9, 2008.

“Patrick was the most energetic, enthusiastic wholesaler I have ever come across,” said Alison Stauber, president of AlisonCompany. “I was devastated when Pat informed me of his diagnosis; he was one of the most vibrant people I knew. Patrick lives in the memory of all who knew him and continues today to inspire all of us to live life to the fullest.”
