Boutique RIA firm experiences continued growth with additional hires in Darien and Boston offices, outlines future expansion goals

Boston, Mass. (April 12, 2021) – Crestwood Advisors (“Crestwood”), a boutique investment advisory and wealth management firm based in Boston, today announced it has eclipsed two key milestones in its strategic growth plan.

In two years’ time, Crestwood has more than doubled its assets under management. During the pandemic, the firm has also expanded its team by 25% to support growing client needs.

The newest team additions include Charles W. Tricomi Jr., Hillary Urbancic-Davis and Nathan Gore.

Charles W. Tricomi, Jr., CFA, CFP® | Charles joins Crestwood as a Portfolio Manager, working out of its Darien, Connecticut office. He brings CFA & CFP® designations as well as 7+ years of wealth management experience to his role.

Hillary Urbancic-Davis, CPWA® | Hillary joins Crestwood at its headquarters as a Client Advisor. She possesses 7 years of direct client engagement experience with high-net-worth families. She holds a CPWA designation and is pursuing a CIMA designation.

Nathan Gore | Nathan joins Crestwood at its headquarters as an in-house Technology Specialist. He is a Certified Salesforce Administrator and brings a vast technical background to his role at the firm.

Committed to holding itself to a standard of fiduciary excellence, these strategic additions will aid Crestwood in its mission of developing client strategies that seek to protect, preserve and grow wealth. Now equipped with a team of 41 financial planning and investment professionals across its three offices, Crestwood has hired eight people over the past year.

“We’re thrilled to see our team growing and thriving,” said Crestwood CEO/Managing Partner Michael Eckton. “As we continue stewarding the most advantageous financial solutions for our clients through the growth of our staff, we’re also setting our sights on market growth, with a focus on enhancing Crestwood’s footprint in the Connecticut region and across the New England region.”

In 2019, Crestwood merged with Westport-based Catamount Wealth Management and MacGuire, Cheswick & Tuttle Investment Counsel in Darien to expand its footprint into Connecticut and broaden its team.

The mergers have helped the firm grow to three offices that now manage approximately $4.17 billion in assets, as of March 31, on behalf of high-net-worth individuals and families. Two years ago, Crestwood had approximately $1.99 billion in assets under management.

Crestwood continues to experience increased client growth and greater demand for more holistic financial planning services and investment strategies, which could fuel additional staffing needs.

“We’re optimistic about the significant progress we’ve made over the past two years, and hope to continue in this direction by attracting talent organically and acquiring it,” Eckton said.

Crestwood’s executive team remains active in its recruiting efforts of wealth management professionals from New York to Maine, including financial planners and portfolio managers, to further enhance client support and achieve results that meet current and future objectives.
