NEW YORK, Jan. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AdvisorHub LLC (AH), an online forum where financial advisors share news, rumors and compensation information, announced today that it has named Tony Sirianni as its new CEO.
Mr. Sirianni, who holds a law degree and a Masters in creative writing, has 25 years of financial services industry experience and served most recently as managing partner of Sirianni Strategy Group LLC. After serving as a financial advisor in New York City, he went on to manage some of the most profitable complexes of brokerage firm offices in the United States for Legg Mason, Smith Barney, and Morgan Stanley. He is also the founder and former CEO of Washington Wealth Management and a founder of Steward Partners Global Advisory, an independent advisory firm.
AdvisorHub also has formed a new editorial and reporting team led by Mason Braswell, formerly of InvestmentNews, and Jed Horowitz, formerly of Reuters. Each has years of in-depth reporting experience covering the retail brokerage industry at prominent financial publications.
"I want to enrich our website and enhance the experience of our users," Sirianni said. "That means adding real, powerful news, without losing the 'direct-from-the-Advisor' attitude that has made us one of the fastest-growing and most popular sites in finance."
AdvisorHub's evolution from a user-submitted rumor website and compensation directory to one that also sources professionally reported news has quickly born fruit. It has been first in recent weeks to report new compensation programs at major brokerage firms, Credit Suisse's raiding complaint against UBS, the forced leave of a Barron's Top 10 financial adviser from his employer and Raymond James' deal to buy Deutsche Bank's U.S. wealth business.
"We plan to deliver high-quality content to our readers," Braswell said. "The interactive nature of AdvisorHub and the information our readers entrust to us gives us a unique advantage over competitors in delivering news first."
"We've been given a mandate from the top down to give our community the transparency, facts and insights our readers deserve," Horowitz said.
AdvisorHub is an interactive online community for Financial Advisors providing news, insights, and compensation information for financial advisors. It is headquartered in New York City and Columbus Ohio, with an additional office in Miami FL.
