Formerly, Josh was an Assistant Vice President and leader of the Advisor & Institution M&A team at LPL Financial.

Fun Facts: Josh grew up in Scottsdale, but after years of brutal summers he moved to San Diego in 2011 to live near the ocean. He surfs regularly, snorkels in the summer, free dives for lobster in the fall, and swims laps year-round. Anything water-related! He also loves to travel with his wife and explore new cities and cuisines.
