Riverside Wealth Management Announces New Chief Investment Officer

Michael W. Hartley is our new Chief Investment Officer (CIO) and was recently promoted to President of our partner DKE (Dale K. Ehrhart).  Byron Sanders, our former CIO, has retired from day-to-day investment management to pursue his passion for communicating the benefits of disciplined investing.  As a powerful voice in the investment community, we will continue to leverage Byron’s unique ability to understand markets and how they relate to your needs.

Prior to his promotion, Mike was vice president, leading the firm’s virtual family office division and working with Byron to support our client service team.  Like Byron, Mike will work directly with me to design and implement specific investment plans and will oversee the day-to-day management of investment accounts.

Mike received his Master of Business Administration in Finance and Bachelor of Business Administration degrees from the University of Miami School of Business and attended executive studies programs at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.  He is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERâ„¢ and holds certificates from the Family Firm Institute in Family Wealth Advising and in Family Business Advising.

Mike is the co-author of the book, “The Financial Advisor Practice Lifecycle”, and was once named to the list of Top 40 Investment Advisors Under 40 in the United States by Wealth Management, Trusts and Estates Magazine.  Mike is also a highly sought-after industry thought leader advising on topics ranging from retirement planning to information technology.

We look forward to working with Mike in his new role.
