“My philosophy regarding matching financial advisors with the right firm has remained the same since I’ve been recruiting and that is to recommend the firm that is the best fit for the advisor and most importantly their clients. In being an independent recruiting firm we represent numerous different options for advisors but if the best fit is for them to go to another firm we don’t represent then I would still recommend that firm as keeping advisors and their clients happy is the ultimate goal.”

“Personal markers for success are usually based on gross production or the number of trades made in this industry but I feel the best marker for my success are the thank you emails and referrals I receive after placing a candidate. It is always rewarding knowing you helped someone transition to their next chapter of life and getting referrals reaffirms the professionalism and discretion I uphold throughout the process. “
