My NET WORTHWHILE™ is finding, analyzing, and monitoring investment strategies that empower our talented investment team to impact our clients and their wealth positively.
As Director of Investment Research and a decade-plus veteran of the investment team, Tom seeks to identify strategies, evaluate opportunities, and monitor investments that enhance our clients’ goals, objectives, and passions. Tom works closely with his fellow analysts, the Chief Investment Officer, and other senior leaders to think strategically about how the investment opportunities can add value to client portfolios. Tom credits his father for modeling the impact of teaching and mentoring, as his father routinely received teacher of the year at a large hospital in Chicago. Tom also shares this passion for mentoring through our intern program, which he developed, helping to shape the future of the financial industry.
Before joining SignatureFD, Tom worked with Homrich Berg and Diversified Trust. Many of his efforts centered on alternative investments with responsibilities including launching, investing, explaining, and monitoring private strategies in asset classes, including real assets and private equity. Tom began his investment career as a private equity analyst with a regional boutique while pursuing a dual master’s degree at the University of Denver.
After graduating with an MBA with an IT Concentration and an MS in Finance, Tom moved to Marietta, where he became an active member of First Presbyterian Church Marietta. During his time at First Presbyterian, Tom has served as Moderator of the Diaconate and Elder and actively participated in strategic planning groups. Previously, he served on MUST Ministries Board of Directors for approximately six years.SAVE AS PDF
