SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Perigon Wealth Management is pleased to announce that Mary Ballin, CFP®, has joined the firm as a wealth manager and will be leading a new East Bay office as the firm expands its presence in the San Francisco Bay Area.

"We know talented, experienced advisors like Mary have a lot of options, and are delighted she chose Perigon as a home for her clients," said Perigon CEO Arthur Ambarik. "Mary's deep expertise in complex financial planning matters, in particular with women and individuals going through a divorce, is a welcome addition to the Perigon team."

She is also an active member of the Financial Planning Association and was past president of the Tri-Valley Estate Planning Council.
