Jad and his team work to help their colleagues achieve their goals in an environment that is supportive, collegial and collaborative. While leading the firm's businesses in Northern New England, Jad tries to spend as much of his time as possible focused on his "Why" – "Fostering a culture of passion and empathy so that people feel good about who they are and what they do." Above all else, Jad believes that culture is the most important component to employee satisfaction, and employee satisfaction is the most important component to client satisfaction. With this premise at the forefront of the management team's leadership efforts, the group strives to foster people before business – and good results seem to follow.

His previous roles include Branch Manager for the UBS offices in Bethesda MD and Columbus OH, as well as Head of Field Integration during the firm's acquisition of Piper Jaffray. Prior to joining UBS he held various management positions at Prudential Securities and was a Financial Consultant with Merrill Lynch.
