Additional Information

In 2004, after a successful career in corporate sales, Paul decided that he wanted to try something new. Becoming a financial advisor was a perfect fit, because it combined his background in finance with a desire to have a more personal impact on clients. He realized that instead of returning to a corporate environment, he would enjoy helping individuals and their families succeed by guiding them through often complex personal and financial issues.

Working for the Global Wealth Management group of a leading Wall Street firm allowed him to gain valuable experience and learn much about the entire industry. However, eventually, he realized that he could best serve his clients through an independent business model that eliminated conflicts of interest and allowed for greater intimacy and objectivity. So he founded Collabria in 2012.
