Truepoint Wealth Counsel Continues to Expand Shareholder Group
Truepoint Wealth Counsel is pleased to name three new firm shareholders: Conor Feldmann, Josh Kommer, and Blake Price. This increases Truepoint’s shareholder group to 35 employee-owners, signifying the firm’s continued commitment to attracting and retaining the industry’s top professionals.
“Our management team at Truepoint extends a warm welcome to these new team members joining our shareholder group,” said CEO and founder Michael J. Chasnoff. “Our succession plan was crafted with the steadfast goal of upholding Truepoint’s independence and employee ownership, a principle integral to our founding in 1990 and continuing today.”
Established in 2007, Truepoint’s succession plan enables senior team members to become firm shareholders. As the full team has grown to over 80 individuals, the shareholder group now comprises nearly 40% of the entire team. Notably, within the wealth management sector, numerous firms have opted to relinquish control to large external entities, resulting in a dwindling presence of truly independent and locally controlled firms. “Fundamentally, our shareholder opportunity represents a mutually beneficial arrangement for both our team members and clients,” emphasized president and shareholder Steve Condon. “It enables us to attract and recognize exceptional talent within our team, while simultaneously offering clients the assurance and continuity they deserve.”
