Rockville, MD, August 1, 2017 — Bronfman Rothschild, an independent investment advisor based in Rockville, Maryland, today announced that Michael LaMena will join the firm as President and Chief Operating Officer.
Said Neal Simon, CEO of Bronfman Rothschild, “This is a new role at our firm as we continue to scale our business. Michael adds depth to our management team and has had experience growing a business from $5 billion to $30 billion in assets under management. He is smart, thoughtful and humble and will fit well in our culture.”
LaMena joins Bronfman Rothschild from Hightower Advisors where he was President and COO. He has more than 20 years of experience building operating infrastructure. Prior to Hightower, LaMena spent 14 years at Morgan Stanley & Co. where he served in Executive Director roles for Private Wealth Management Operations in both New York and Hong Kong. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Notre Dame, and holds FINRA series licenses 7,9,10, and 63.

I look forward to working with all of the advisors on the Bronfman Rothschild team across our 9 offices as we seek to deliver high levels of service for our clients.”
Bronfman Rothschild manages over $5.39 billion* in assets and continues to grow both organically and through lift-outs. In May, the firm announced the lift-out of John Wolff and his team to a new office in Reston, VA. Earlier this year, the firm acquired TriCapital Advisors in Maryland, and in March the firm added Marilyn Napoli to its New York office.
