He graduated from St. Joseph’s University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and commenced his career with Gershon, Pierce, Lissak and Co., a public accounting firm in Morristown, NJ. While there, Joe focused on auditing pension plans, not-for-profit organizations, cemeteries and industrial companies.

Joe focuses on building personal relationships with individuals, families, and corporate executives through his exceptional client service. He has a personal and professional commitment to helping clients achieve their financial goals by employing a goal oriented approach to investing and wealth management. This approach coupled with a disciplined wealth management process, allows for the flexibility to adapt to the ever changing economic climate and assists with providing access to banking services, home financing, and lines of credit, as offered through Bank of America, N.A.
Joe is a life-long resident of Morristown, NJ. In his free time Joe enjoys playing golf, skiing, running, and spending time with family and friends. He is a devoted Giants and Yankees fan and also enjoys spending time down the shore in the summers. Joe is very active in local charities such as The Morris Museum and his alma mater Seton Hall Prep.
I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.
