As one of the truly independent employee owned firms in the area, there is a unique opportunity to expand with accomplished advisors that want to be part of something special” said Mr. Hill.
“The financial services industry is changing as full service independent firms are now able to deliver premier wealth management services and advisors are recognizing the advantages of working at a firm that focuses exclusively on one business line.
