Effective June 14, 2021, Curtis will assume the role as President of the Trust & Family Office division, allowing Matt Wagner and Kelly Richert, two original team members, to focus on their primary areas of expertise. In addition to managing his client portfolio, Matt will continue his role as Chief Practice Officer, responsible for developing Parkside's Trust & Family Office services and planning strategies. Kelly will continue to serve as Trust Counsel, providing administrative, investment, legal and accounting expertise to a rapidly growing portfolio of trust clients, while maintaining her family office relationships.

Prior to joining Parkside, Curtis served as Market Leader, Senior Vice President for U.S. Bank Private Wealth Management in St. Louis where he directed a robust wealth management department. A graduate of Kent State University, Curtis continued his education earning a Masters in Business Administration from Eastern Kentucky University in 2001. He is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional.  Drawing from a diverse background in portfolio management, business development, and organization structural development, he is well-equipped to support Parkside in our next phase of growth.

When I consider the changes occurring in the financial services industry, Parkside's “uncommon” high-touch focus on the client experience really stands out. I am excited for the opportunity to lead this incredible team as they continue to grow.
