Competitive spirits were on display as the Rosemont-based financial planning firm headed to their Annual Office Olympics at Catherine Chevalier Woods.

"We are a collaborative and innovative team," said Thomas Canale, managing director at NM-Rosemont. "It's fun to see our financial professionals transfer their competitive spirits for a day of games and healthy rivalry."

This is the 4th year the financial planning firm has hosted the event that has become a perennial favorite.

Under the direction of Molly Martin, director of recruitment and selection, and the unofficial chief fun officer, the day's events included: potato sack and cotton ball races, water balloon toss, puzzles and trivia.

When the competition concluded, it was Financial Advisor Bryce Simon and his Assistant Financial Representative Brianna Wojnowski who won the coveted gold medal.
