He will have a significant impact in assisting our Network Partner firms accelerate growth and increase profitability,” said Mr. Bello.
“Over the last four years, Dynasty has demonstrated a commitment to helping our advisor clients grow their businesses. Increasingly, more advisors in our network are looking to buy other advisory firms and grow by adding advisors to their teams. We have a robust offering in helping advisors with these transactions and have a large appetite to provide our network firms credit for acquisitions. Given the increased demand for these services, we thought it was time to hire a person to oversee these growth initiatives for our increasing roster of clients,” said Dynasty’s President and CEO Shirl Penney.
