Senior Vice President
Greg is the founder and lead advisor for the Mead Group. He has worked in the financial services industry since 2001. Greg sets the overall direction for the team and our investment strategy. He is a qualified Portfolio Manager who, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can help clients pursue their objectives by building and managing his own personalized or defined strategies, which may incorporate individual stocks and bonds, Merrill model portfolios, and third-party investment strategies. When servicing clients through the firm’s Investment Advisory Program, a Portfolio Manager may manage his strategies on a discretionary basis. Greg is also active in alternative investments for qualified clients. These strategies seek to enhance returns and offer further diversification to clients’ portfolios through investments in private equity, real estate, and hedge funds.
