How long have you been an advisor?
I have been advising clients since 1989, when I joined Merrill Lynch as a registered representative. We formed Resolve Capital Management, as an investment advisory firm, in 2010.
What do you enjoy best about wealth management?
The greatest satisfaction earned in this business comes from successfully helping clients achieve their investment goals and objectives. Along the way we have the opportunity to develop long lasting relationships and friendships. Having those relationships extend across generations is one of the most rewarding aspects of what we do.
What is the importance of the CIMA designation?
The CIMA Certification means that when you work with a CIMA professional, you're gaining the expertise of someone who has committed to attaining competence as an advanced investment advisor. CIMA professionals offer the skills and strategies to guide you through complex financial challenges.
What do you love most about being part of Resolve Capital Management?
We established Resolve Capital Management to provide our clients with unbiased, objective investment advice. Knowing that we work in our clients best interest, free from outside pressures, is the one thing that ignites a daily passion in all of us to make our business succeed. In our business model, our only path to success is through our clients success.
What would you be doing if you weren't in the financial industry?
I have a passion for food. If I weren't in this business, I would most probably own a restaurant. In a previous career, I owned and managed restaurants. Having done this, however, I know what it takes to be successful and I am eternally grateful to have spent the last twenty some years in the financial services industry.
