Samuel “Sandy” Haviland, Founder & CEO, Confidant

Sandy is a Connecticut native who has spent fourteen years performing financial advisory work, including seven years with his own firm. He has had extensive responsibility for organizing, protecting, and assuring the highest standards of security and confidentiality for hundreds of millions of dollars worth of client assets and related information.

Sandy founded Confidant because of a personal realization he had one day – his vital personal and family information was scattered in different places and seldom, if ever, communicated to his family. If anything went wrong on one of his frequent business trips, his family wouldn’t know where to find any of the information they would need. Setting out to solve this problem, Confidant was born. Sandy has a BA from Yale and an MBA from Kellogg. He lives in Connecticut with his wife and two children. And these days he has peace of mind when he takes business trips, knowing that if the unthinkable were to happen, his family would be protected by Confidant.
