CHICAGO, Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HighTower has once again ranked on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This marks the company's third appearance on the Inc. list since 2012, the first year HighTower was eligible for inclusion.
"We're in the middle of an investor renaissance. Investors have more information, tools and options at their fingertips than ever before," said Elliot Weissbluth, HighTower CEO. "HighTower is growing because our teams of independent financial advisors deliver the best of both worlds: cutting-edge technology plus the peace of mind that comes from working with a thoughtful human being." An estimated four percent of companies on the Inc. 5000 list each year have achieved the honor three times.
Founded in 2007, HighTower has grown to include more than 100 advisors in 35 offices across the country. In 2014 alone, seven new advisor teams joined HighTower: the Ezzell Group (Sacramento, Calif.), Fiduciary Plan Advisors (Baltimore, Md.), Gryphon Financial Partners (Columbus, Ohio), HighTower Bellevue (Bellevue, Wash.), HighTower Fort Myers (Fort Myers, Fla.), RJ Wealth Management (New York City), and a team of three top advisors who joined Kelly Wealth Management (Hunt Valley, Md.).
The firm also recently secured $100MM in bank financing to support its continued growth.
