Our firm was founded on the belief that clients’ best interests should always come first and it is extremely rewarding to see our clients continually place their faith in us."

In his new role, Bowman’s expertise in money management and financial planning will enable him to continue providing clients with highly specialized asset management programs that directly align with their goals. He holds the Series 7 and Series 66 licenses, in addition to the Certified Financial Planner™ designation awarded by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Inc. Bowman received his bachelor’s degree from the University of New Hampshire, where he captained the football team and majored in Business Administration.
