Blisk is # 90 in the national list, which appeared in Barron's June 9th edition and #19 in the Virginia list, which appeared in the June edition of Virginia Business magazine. Both lists are compiled by R. J. Shook and based on criteria such as a minimum of seven years of financial services experience and other weighted requirements, including wealth management focus and customer satisfaction.

He extracted the Virginia rankings from his national research database."
