I am super excited to join a team that continues to innovate, leverages best-practices it has developed over decades, and utilizes technology to deliver solutions that support clients’ most complex service and investment objectives. The firm’s entrepreneurial ethos, highly talented professionals and diverse and prominent clientele attracted me to the opportunity.
