Stemming from a family of small business owners, Max has entrepreneurship in his blood.  Working as a used car salesman at age 16, he knew he would pursue his dream to live in New York City and work in Finance. He began his professional career as a computer technician in NYC at the largest Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management ensemble in the nation, determined to learn everything he could about investments and estate planning. This led him to managing multimillion dollar accounts and helping many important Wall Street influencers. Family responsibilities brought him back to the Carolinas where he started his own practice, continuing to learn and hone his skills. Following his instincts and believing a strong team behind him would help him have the most positive impact on his client’s lives, he moved back to New York and now brings his business acumen and experience to FHFG.
