Top 100 Branch Managers
The wealth management industry's leading branch managers work hard to bring out the best in their advisors.

Just like the coach of a winning team aiming for a berth in the playoffs, a top branch manager guides his or her advisors through good times and bad. That manager motivates star players to shine, has the back of those who require extra coaching and recruits new talent.

To acknowledge the importance of their contribution to the success of advisors and their firms, On Wall Street annually spotlights the industry's top 100 branch managers. To identify the crème de la crème among this group of stalwarts, the list will be narrowed by a panel of judges.

In May, we will unveil the top 10 branch managers. Please click through our slideshow to see the top 100 honorees. Or click here for the single page version.
