Find out more about our Advisory Council Member, Chris Brice!

BRIEF BIO:
I have always been a southerner.  I grew up on the south shore of Long Island!  In whatever job I have had, I think a common thread has been that there has been a teaching component.  I love it because I get to help people realize their true potential.  In my role now, I oversee the selection of talent to join our team and help develop them so they can run and direct their own careers as financial advisors.  It is exciting to watch them grown and to see the positive impact they have on the lives of their clients.
