Patricia A. Garrison-Corbin, founder of Philadelphia-based financial advisory firm PG Corbin & Co., died Oct. 17 after battling breast cancer. She was 62.
Twenty-three years ago, Mrs. Corbin founded her firm. Family members said her business model was simple: to create a boutique-style firm where clients would be known by name and perhaps be served tea upon entry. She endeavored to be a prominent voice for encouraging women to sit at the executive boardroom in the financial sector.
