NAPLES, Fla., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Colony Group, recently ranked by Financial Advisor magazine as one of the fastest growing registered investment advisors in the country, announced its plans for further expansion in Florida. The expansion includes the appointment of Joseph Salvati, a long-time veteran of the company and a resident of Naples, Florida, as Senior Vice President in charge of The Colony Group's Florida offices. The company also has hired Jack Clark, a lifelong Florida resident, to work with Mr. Salvati in its Naples office.
Mr. Salvati, a graduate of Brandeis University who holds the professional designation of CFP® Professional, has provided comprehensive wealth management services to high-net-worth clients for over ten years.

"I look forward to working with our entire team to offer our Florida clients the high-caliber, objective, and comprehensive wealth management services that have propelled the growth of our organization for over 27 years," said Salvati. "The Florida markets have long been one of our most important markets, and our recent actions and investments reflect our continuing commitment to offer service excellence in Florida and, indeed, throughout the country," said Michael Nathanson, CEO of The Colony Group.
