Today, after successfully guiding clients, colleagues, and his office through a devastating period of financial unrest, Charles, knowing that there is a better way, has ventured out on his own to create a truly client- and community-centric firm, Ivory Wealth Management.

Together they are bringing to town a truly unique firm and are out to prove that there is a better way . . .
