"Fusion's growth is due to its successful bundling of business management assistance and negotiation with key industry service providers," said Palaveev, in a statement announcing his new position. "That is the future of successful industry affiliation models--integrating strategic planning with execution assistance to dramatically improve the advisory practice."
Most recently, Palaveev was a principal with Moss Adams LLP where he led market research for the firm. He is the second leading industry consultant to leave the firm in the past year--last fall Mark Tibergien resigned to join Pershing LLC.
Founder Stuart Silverman will continue to serve as CEO for Fusion, which has more than 200 advisors who manage over $7 billion in assets.
