Our Team

The Managing Directors of Hollencrest realized early on that we could only build the best possible firm if we started with the best possible employees. We have worked hard to build a company culture that values personal growth, independent thinking, market instincts and a commitment to excellence. These values have enabled us to attract bright and highly motivated people who come to Hollencrest and don’t want to leave.

Our clients benefit from our carefully crafted culture by getting better results, generated by a committed and dedicated team that understands every small nuance about our clients. Our size and stability allow us to build our relationships for the long haul.


Hollencrest’s founding principals are responsible for the strategy, security selection and construction of your portfolio.
