NEW YORK, November 2, 2017Snowden Lane Partners, an independent, advisor-owned, wealth advisory firm dedicated to providing client-focused advice in a values-driven culture, today announced that Sharon Reese will join the firm as a Partner and Director in The Feldman Group in Pittsburgh, PA. Her start date is November 30.

“When I first met Sharon, I knew she was a professional that would have an immediate positive impact on our disciplined and studied approach to the wealth management process,” said Feldman. “And as someone who’s spent her career committed to prioritizing the people in that process, we’re certain that she’s well-equipped to guide our clients toward their unique financial goals.”

Added Reese: “I’m fortunate to be part of an organization that recognizes the value of empowering its advisors, equipping them with the right resources and offering them the intellectual latitude to do right by clients. I look forward to achieving great things with this team.”

“Sharon’s addition to the growing Feldman Group is a testament to the draw of our firm as a home for top U.S. financial advisory industry talent,” said Lyle LaMothe, Chairman of Snowden Lane. “With her decades of experience and a proven commitment to client success, we couldn’t be happier to welcome her to the team.”
