Chair Estate and Trust Planning Global Leadership Team
Chicago, Ill., and Bloomfield Hills, Mich. (November 4, 2021) – Cendrowski Corporate Advisors today announced its Founder and Managing Director Harry Cendrowski has been elected Global Chairperson of GGI‘s Trust & Estate Planning Practice Group. He will serve a three-year term ending in 2024. GGI announced the appointment last month following the results of an organization-wide vote.
Harry Cendrowski has been an active participant in GGI events and webinars since Cendrowski Corporate Advisors LLC joined GGI Global Alliance in 2019.
In his new role, Cendrowski will work with a global team of experts on strategic planning, practice group management, and positioning of the Trust & Estate Planning Practice Group. Their objective is to stay abreast of international developments so that GGI Practice Group members and their clients remain at the forefront of their business.
Cendrowski will engage regional leadership teams representing Asia-Pacific, Middle East-Africa, Europe, North America, and Latin America to foster an international, lively exchange of the latest news and developments.
“Given the mobility of high net worth private clients, we see a great need for those in the trust and estate profession to be able to identify cross-border issues,” says Harry Cendrowski. “GGI Global Alliance gives professionals access to a network of colleagues that help handle business abroad.”

- Advances training and learning to promote the practical aspects of cross-border trust and estate planning and administration.
