I bet you didn’t know…
In the early days of his career in financial services, Marty was discovered at a local restaurant/bar, H. A Winston & Co. and began to model part-time for the local agency in Cherry Hill, NJ. When the shoots started interfering with his client appointments, he decided that his future may be better served to help people rather than in front of a camera, which most would agree!
Why he started Family Wealth Management…
Even though his two youngest children currently work here, they were in middle school when the firm was formed back in 1999. Marty’s vision was that Family Wealth Management would focus on providing generational guidance to one’s entire family so that people of all ages can make informed decisions with their money.
Marty is an avid golf enthusiast and has played at courses around the world. His most famous course is Pine Valley Golf Club in NJ. It was previously ranked the #1 golf one course in the world by Golf Magazine.
