This April, the Charlotte Business Journal released its list of the largest financial planning firms in the Charlotte-area. “We are honored to be included on the list,” says CAPTRUST Senior Vice President and Financial Advisor Michael Blair.
“We are humbled to be recognized with [this award], and to be grouped with so many amazing organizational peers,” says Devyn Duex, financial advisor and co-president of the CAPTRUST Community Foundation.
