Kuo added, “Each understands the wealth management industry and has an ideal combination of skills to generate significant results for our clients as part of a seamless and high-touch service experience. This expansion of our team further reinforces our firm’s longstanding emphasis on providing constant client access to senior talent who can hit the ground running and add value rapidly upon engagement.”

Over the last few years, everyone at the firm has learned the value of respect, dependability and working in harmony with one another. That’s why we are so conscientious about who we hire and, importantly, who we retain. Indeed, bringing aboard and keeping team-oriented senior talent has been central to our recent success, helping to explain why the firm’s sky-high client and employee-retention rates mirror one another so closely.”

Founded by Kuo in late 2011, Haven Tower recently reached its 12th anniversary. Kuo previously served as SVP and Head of Public Relations at LPL Financial, and prior to that, as a Partner at Kekst & Company (now Kekst CNC).
