Anne met Aurora Financial Group founder Charlie Dibner during her six year working tenure as an administrative assistant at IMCG. Shortly after Aurora opened its doors, in August 2005, Anne joined the firm as Office Manager and Commander in Residence. She is now the firm’s Director of Operations.
A 1972 graduate of New York’s Berkeley Business School, she worked for Grolier Inc. and for the national accounting firm Peat, Marwick, & Mitchell. Anne is Aurora’s gatekeeper, major domo, scheduler and systems manager. She also bears the indespensible responsibility for overseeing all federal, state and agency record keeping and reporting. Uniquely, Anne manages the office’s direct client contact allowing Aurora to effectively maintain regular, personal contact with our clients.
Anne was born and raised in the Bronx, N.Y., but is not – she repeats, NOT – a Yankees fan. She has been married to her husband, Bill, since 1976. Being a graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, Bill has been at sea during intermittent periods for as long as they’ve been married. They have three sons: Chris, who works for Liberty Mutual Insurance Co.; Joey, who lives in Portland and works for a legal firm; and Kevin, who graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, works in the film industry, and resides in NYC.
Anne, a longtime Portland resident, loves spending time with her sister and the kids at their family camp on Peabody Pond. She also enjoys taking walks along the shores of Crescent Beach. Anne says. “I truly cherish all that makes Maine special – the rocky coast, the great beaches and the wonderful lakes. And, of course, Portland – especially the Old Port. Who could ask for more?”
