Middleburg, VA (PRWEB) March 23, 2011
Washington Wealth Management, LLC welcomes aboard E. Lee Pinney Jr., a 30-year veteran of the financial services industry and a top producer in the Richmond area for over 25 years. Mr. Pinney will serve as the Managing Director of Washington Wealth Management’s new Richmond branch, the firm’s second branch to open since its launch in December of 2010.
Washington Wealth Management Founder and CEO Tony Sirianni remarked, “I am thrilled Lee has joined us in this endeavor. His dedication to his clients matches the values we hold, and we are confident that his vast experience as a top-producing adviser will allow his business and this new branch to thrive in Richmond.”
Previous to joining Washington Wealth Management, Mr. Pinney was a Senior Managing Director for Scott & Stringfellow, where he was consistently a top producer throughout his 19 years with the firm, first breaking the $1 million mark in 1995. On his decision to join the firm, Mr. Pinney states: “I had a lot of options to consider, but Washington Wealth Management was the right move for me, given where the industry is headed. The innovation this platform provides is transformational and I am looking forward to the incredible opportunity this will provide for client service.”
Washington Wealth Management, LLC, a Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) was created to offer Financial Advisers the opportunity to break away from the traditional wirehouse relationship, something more and more advisers are exploring these days as they, and their clients, have become disillusioned with the traditional brokerage model. Washington Wealth Management Advisers take ownership of their business, while also enjoying local onsite access to the back-office and administrative support they need to provide the best level of service. At the same time, they have access to world-class products and services, which allow them to attract high net worth clients. Lastly, advisers at Washington Wealth Management are part of an independent branch network, with a culture that values and encourages collaboration and idea sharing between all of its advisers, values them as individuals, and cares about their clients.
Washington Wealth Management’s independent approach ensures that the advisers’ interests are aligned with the clients' needs, and as such, clients can be confident in the integrity of the firm and their adviser. Mr. Sirianni explained, “I think you will find that we offer a very different approach to financial services: one that places the interests of our clients above all else. We believe the relationship an individual financial adviser has with a client is paramount, regardless of account size.” He continued, “An example, is our policy of not including excessive fees and transaction charges every step of the way. Those things hurt the relationship with the client over time and place the adviser in a difficult situation.”
The opening of the Richmond branch marks the second branch the firm has opened since launching three months ago. The first branch, located in Middleburg, VA, opened in December 2010. Mr. Ross Wilkinson, Director of Development for Washington Wealth Management said, “We are proud of our quick expansion and the opening of this second branch. We’ve launched two branches since we started in December, and we’re hopeful to be adding several more in the coming months.”
