Gurtin Municipal Bond Management Named a 2018 Top Workplace by San Diego Newspaper

Municipal Manager Recognized Locally as a Top Place to Work for Third Consecutive Year

SAN DIEGO (November 13, 2018) — Gurtin Municipal Bond Management (Gurtin), an asset management firm specializing in municipal investment portfolios for ultra-high net worth and high net worth individuals, earned the San Diego Union-Tribune’s Top Workplace honor for the third consecutive year. Gurtin earned the distinction based on the results of an employee feedback survey, designed to assess satisfaction with the work environment and culture.

“I have always emphasized that our people are our most important asset and are key to what makes Gurtin exceptional. This was true when I founded this firm in 2008 and remains true today, 10 years later,” said Bill Gurtin, CEO and CIO. “Creating an environment where our employees feel challenged and excited to come to work each day is a top priority for the firm.”

Gurtin’s 65 employees are primarily based out of offices in Solana Beach, San Francisco, and Chicago. Employees view the firm as a true meritocracy, wherein the quality of their work and dedication to the firm’s mission to consistently “raise the bar” on municipal bond management are of utmost importance. In turn, employees are provided with the support they need to produce their best work and advance professional goals, while maintaining a positive work-life balance.

Out of 67 total applicants in this year’s small business category, the San Diego Union-Tribune recognized Gurtin along with 37 San Diego-based companies and organizations with fewer than 149 employees as Top Workplaces. Other categories included midsize organizations and large organizations. Any organization with 50 or more employees in San Diego is eligible to apply. Neither the firm nor any employees paid a fee to be considered for, or awarded, this honor. Top Workplaces recognized eligible companies based on a 24-question survey — which covered workplace topics, such as leadership, direction, appreciation, and meaningfulness — that employees completed, which Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics) distributed and analyzed. The evaluations for the list are based purely on employee opinions.
