“We’re thrilled to welcome Doug to the firm, as his experience in the independent wealth management space makes him a natural fit for our team”
As the latest addition to the firm’s Riverstone Capital Wealth Group, Gill will be based in Snowden Lane’s Bethesda office and serve as a Partner and Managing Director.
