Snowden Lane Partners Hires Northeast Recruiting Leader

Doug Flaherty, Formerly of Wells Fargo, Joins the $7 Billion Hybrid RIA’s New York City Headquarters

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Snowden Lane Partners, an independent, advisor-owned, wealth advisory firm dedicated to providing client-focused advice in a values-driven culture, today announced that Doug Flaherty has joined the firm as Managing Director, Northeast. He will be based in Snowden Lane’s NYC office and focus principally on recruitment, as the firm looks to build on its strong growth and momentum.

“Doug has had an impressive career at several top-notch firms and we’re very fortunate to welcome him to our team,” said Greg Franks, President and COO of Snowden Lane Partners. “We’ve experienced tremendous growth over the last year and our pipeline for recruiting new advisors has never been stronger. Having someone with Doug’s experience and insights on board will be a big boost as we head further into 2021 and continue along our trajectory as one of the fastest-growing RIAs in the country.”

Prior to Snowden Lane, Mr. Flaherty was a Senior Vice President and Complex Manager for Wells Fargo Advisors, heading their NYC International Private Client Services group where he was responsible for a 36-person Wealth Management team. In his almost 10 years at Wells Fargo, he oversaw the growth and success of Wells Fargo’s international efforts and helped the group become one of the top performing offices in the region. Earlier in his career, he held senior leadership roles at JP Morgan, Bear Stearns, Citi Smith Barney, Bank of America, Fleet Boston, and Quick & Reilly. He holds Series 3, 4, 7, 8, 24, 63, 65 and Life & Health Insurance licenses, and earned his BA in Business and Finance from Saint Michael’s College.

“I’m thrilled to be joining such an exciting and forward-thinking firm,” said Mr. Flaherty. “Supporting advisors and helping them service their clients is what has driven my passion and career for almost 30 years. With the wealth advisory industry undergoing a massive sea change in recent years, Snowden Lane has continuously impressed me with their focus, vision and commitment to championing independent advisors. It’s clear that they will be one of the leading firms of the future.”

Mr. Flaherty’s international experience will be put to good use as Snowden Lane has established itself as the go-to RIA for advisors who cater to international clients. A number of the firm’s leadership team spent decades working abroad, and they used that experience to create a platform that is welcoming and tailor-made to the needs of international clients and advisors.

Since its founding in 2011, Snowden Lane has rapidly built a national brand, attracting top industry talent from Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, UBS, JP Morgan, Raymond James, and Wells Fargo, among others.
