Adhering to the Raymond James guiding principles, Tom believes in the independence of the Advisor through Book Ownership, adherence to corporate governance, and having fun while working. Creating a culture of supporting the advisor and their practice, being an advocate for the advisors and building strong branch culture by active listening and leadership, allows the independent spirit of Raymond James to flourish.
