Brokerage firm Benjamin F. Edwards & Co. said Monday that it added five veteran financial advisors at a new location in Danbury, Conn. The new office – the company’s 12th nationwide – joins a Hamden, Conn., branch in the Constitution State.
Arnold H. Rozany, who has 30-plus years in the business, will lead the new office. He spent the majority of his career at A.G. Edwards, which was acquired in 2007 by Wachovia Securities (now Wells Fargo Advisors).
“When we began opening branches a year ago, we pledged to build locations around talented individuals who had the leadership qualities and professional experience necessary to not only build a branch and lead it, but to also deliver on our commitment to provide our clients with the advice they deserve and the financial tools and solutions they need to help them reach their financial goals and objectives,” said Chairman, CEO and President Benjamin F. (Tad) Edwards IV in a press release.
“This group in Danbury embraces this commitment,” added Edwards, “and we are thrilled to have them with us.”
Also transferring with Rozany from Wells Fargo Advisors are Anthony J. Falcone and Robert A. Schenck, who have 28 and nearly 20 years of experience, respectively.
In addition, Terry L. Rodrigues and Christopher P. Kachur, who have a combined total of 40 years of brokerage experience, are joining the branch. Several financial associates are also making the move to Benjamin F. Edwards & Co.
