We understand that as a successful corporate executive you are often time-constrained, and you need to balance multiple professional and personal goals.  We can be of service in helping you prioritize your unique goals and take the necessary steps to help you actively pursue them through:  

  • Managing the risk of a concentrated stock position that ties you to your company’s performance
  • Navigating and complying with SEC rules, your company’s trading restrictions and equity reporting requirements
  • Developing a long-term financial strategy while addressing day-to-day portfolio management as your career advances and your goals change
  • Creating a plan for RSU, options, deferred compensation, and other executive compensation
  • Establishing and managing a thoughtful 10b51 plan
  • Cash and investment management so you can live the lifestyle you want, even though your cash flow may be uneven throughout the year
  • Working with you in a time-sensitive manner, knowing that you are extremely busy and your career is a priority
We are well-versed in helping corporate executives with the complexities associated with their compensation packages, including company stock options, restricted stock and nonqualified deferred compensation. When guiding you in developing diversification strategies for these holdings, including 10b5-1 sales plan design and execution, Rule 144 sales, cashless stock exercise and sale, restricted sale or charitable techniques, we also consider your other assets and risk tolerance.

With our team’s experience in planning, budgeting and cash flow needs, in tandem with Merrill's small business banking capabilities, we can offer a comprehensive approach to growing your business.
We understand that closely held businesses can raise a myriad of emotional and financial issues. Our goal is to keep you focused on managing your business while we assist in organizing and growing your personal wealth. The needs of every business owner are unique, and could include any of the following: 

  • Building your business through alternatives besides using your personal assets to build and expand operations. We offer a wide range of credit and lending solutions that can unlock the borrowing power of your business
  • Analyzing and structuring your cash and financing and offering access to working capital through Bank of America N.A, that helps you meet day-today expenses while providing for employees' pay, benefits and costs
  • Establishing a retirement benefits plan to help maximize your tax deferral and secure you and your employees' future
  • Safeguarding your business and your family’s future with business continuation, wealth transfer or succession strategies. We can help you and your employees manage the risks you face with insurance coverage, estate planning services, as well as personalized wealth management strategies
We provide access to the banking convenience of Bank of America and Merrill's vast network of specialists and business professionals to tailor our advice and guidance to serve your specific needs. For example, if you are preparing a business for sale, we collaborate with Bank of America Merrill's Global Banking and Markets Group for guidance on mergers, acquisitions and initial public offerings.

Corporate Benefits & Retirement Plans

Our team works with key executive and employees at corporate, non-profit and small business alike to provide financial wellness advice. We help our plan sponsors remain competitive by providing access to retirement plan strategies based on each company’s unique situation. One of the few teams in the region with a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation holder, Certified 401(k) Professional designation holder and Retirement Benefits Consultant, we are positioned to provide exceptional financial wellness advice, risk mitigation strategies and guidance to business owners, corporate executives and their employees in working towards financial success in retirement.

Robust benefits packages are often a crucial part of business strategy - helping employers recruit and retain employees and assisting employees to pursue personal financial goals. Today’s rapidly changing regulations, reporting requirements and heightened fiduciary concerns demand more time from plan sponsors than ever before. We have extensive experience providing guidance on a broad array of corporate benefits, including defined contribution, defined benefit, nonqualified deferred compensation and executive trading programs.  Our process consists of:

  • Needs Assessment to evaluate your plan’s effectiveness, compared with others in the industry. For new plans, we evaluate your business requirements to determine the appropriate retirement plan program
  • Plan Design and Implementation including construction and review of investment menus and education for individual plan participants
  • Plan Investment Tracking using a disciplined process through which we can make fund recommendations, based on performance
  • Employee Communication and Education including enrollment meetings and ongoing seminars to educate employees about using the plan, including choosing distribution elections 


Our process is designed to provide a customized, consistent experience to assist clients not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. Our ability to provide access to the investment insights of Merrill and the banking convenience of Bank of America offers a way for clients to manage all of the pieces of their financial lives. We see
ourselves as a financial resource, helping clients with potential solutions for transferring wealth to the younger generation.


Merrill is proud of our advisors who’ve received recognition from financial industry publications or directly from Bank of America Corporation. We believe they are setting the standard for exemplary client service.
