Top 100 Branch Managers
A team is only as strong as its leader and in the wealth management industry, branch managers are the ones responsible to bring out the best in their advisors.

Just like the coach of a winning team, top branch managers groom their top performers to excel, build team morale, fuel motivation and recruit the best talent in the industry.

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. This year's list is picked by advisors and then narrowed by a panel of judges.

Click through our slideshow to see the top 100 honorees.
