Two advisory firms say they recently hired former college and professional football players to join their teams.
Integrated Partners, an RIA affiliated with LPL Financial that works with financial advisors and CPAs, has recruited Harrison Till from Merrill Lynch, where he worked with about $100 million in assets.
Till played football at Ohio State and Duke University before joining Merrill in 2010.
“We’re hitting balls to all parts of the field at the moment and will continue to do so, because we have perhaps the most compelling growth offering for the fiercely independent, entrepreneurial advisor,” according to Rob Sandrew, head of advisor recruiting for Integrated.
With his transition to the firm in New Jersey, Integrated should surpass $7 billion in brokerage and advisory assets. It added over $2 billion in 2019.
“Integrated offers the ability to create bespoke financial plans for my clients based entirely on their unique financial circumstances,” according to Till.
The firm has about 150 advisors and 125 CPAs in 45 offices.
