IRVINE, CA, September 16, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Following a year of robust expansion that saw a 20 percent organic uptick in assets under management and the opening of two new offices, Apriem Advisors has announced the hiring of a new portfolio administrator and financial planner.
Christopher Whitaker is serving as a financial planner, and Alan Ahmatovic is working as a portfolio administrator. Both are based in Apriem's Irvine, Calif., headquarters.
"We are pleased to have both Alan and Christopher join our team at Apriem Advisors," said Harmon Kong, CFP, chief wealth manager who co-founded the company in 1998.
