We wish Janine all the best in her well-earned retirement."

Ms. Wertheim said, "I am proud to have helped build one of the largest and most visible firms in the independent wealth management industry. It has been my privilege to take this incredible professional journey in partnership with the amazing people at our home office and the thousands of independent financial professionals who count on us to support their business success and drive an exceptional service experience for their clients.
