He also works closely with clients' tax and legal advisors to help ensure that the team's recommendations align to help protect and grow clients' wealth. Also a multi-year recipient of the Five Star Wealth Manager award, Mr. Cona served as a Vice President and Wealth Management Advisor at Merrill Lynch before joining HighTower.
