AdvisorAssist, LLC Announces Promotions & Expansion of Team
Marshfield, MA (May 15, 2019) — AdvisorAssist, LLC announced today the promotion of Conor I. Anderson and Brian M. Young to Partner and the addition of four new consultants to its team.
Both Conor and Brian joined AdvisorAssist in 2015 and have grown into management roles through implementing institutional systems and processes, along with developing a strong nucleus of compliance consultants. Under their leadership, AdvisorAssist has significantly grown its client engagements while building a team of sixteen experienced compliance professionals.
“Conor and Brian have been instrumental in our growth and success,” said Chris Winn, CEO of AdvisorAssist. “They both continually exceed the expectations of our partner firms and deliver innovative compliance and technology solutions to help our advisors build, grow, protect and optimize their firms.”
Conor joined the AdvisorAssist team with over fifteen years of investment compliance experience, including SEC, FINRA and global functional compliance expertise. Conor has served as a Chief Compliance Officer for an SEC-registered RIA and has held senior compliance officer roles with global asset managers.
Brian joined the AdvisorAssist team with over ten years of experience in the investment industry with a focus on sales and client relationship management. Brian’s experience spans various positions within a global broker-dealer and a hedge fund.
In addition to promotions, AdvisorAssist has recently expanded by adding four new consultants to its team, including: Christopher Mortara, Vice President, and Charlotte Malone, Compliance Consultant, both former Chief Compliance Officers of SEC-registered investment advisory firms; and Ann Keitner, Assistant Vice President and Kayla Berg, Senior Compliance Consultant, both of whom have previous experience as regulatory compliance consultants.
“We are excited about the depth of experience and knowledge that our consultants bring to our team. Many of our consultants have lived the life of a Chief Compliance Officer and bring real-world experience to our client engagements. We can relate to the anxiety of the unknown that many of our clients may feel. Therefore, we don’t simply read the Advisers Act to our clients or chase them around with a checklist. We are here to be a collaborative partner to critically analyze the business practices and operations to implement practical solutions that make sense for the client,” said Brian Young, Partner.
“AdvisorAssist continues to enhance its team with individuals who can bring different experiences and perspectives to bear in helping AdvisorAssist’s clients. Because compliance is multi-faceted, AdvisorAssist’s ability to address challenges and opportunities from various angles is a significant benefit to advisors,” said Troy Paredes, Member, Advisory Board.
