“Chris is a service minded leader with a track record of success throughout his career, and we are excited to add him to our passionate, dedicated team.” said Alesco’s founder and President, James Gould. “While we celebrate crossing the $5 billion threshold in client assets, it is our emphasis on service that makes me most proud, and Chris’s addition only makes us stronger in this regard.”
