The Meaning behind Greywolf

The name Greywolf has an essential familial connection to Joe Wagner, CEO, and Denise Wagner, Chairman of the Board at Greywolf Partners, Inc.

Denise’s father, Curtis W. Blackdeer (CW), was Native American and was a citizen of the Ho-Chunk Nation. CW’s given name was “Grey Wolf.” To the Ho-Chunk Nation, the Grey Wolf is an honored animal that oversees and protects the entire tribe. Joe believed this perfectly encapsulated the concept of his company. Like how the Grey Wolf oversees and protects the entire tribe, Greywolf Partners is set up “to oversee and protect the assets of our investors and clients.”

Joe adds, “I love that I was able to name my company after this great man. CW meant the world to my family. We love him and miss him very much. R.I.P. CW.”

CW passed away on Friday, August 9, 2019, but his legacy continues at Greywolf Partners.
