Horwitz said, “Our firm has evolved significantly over the years, and we are thrilled to start this next chapter of our growth with LaSalle St. We needed a partner who understood and respected our culture, approach and dedication to our history, that simultaneously positioned us for the future. Working with and getting to know the entire LaSalle St. team over the past many months has reinforced we made the right choice for our firm and clients.”
