Justin Justin J. McNamara, CFP®
Vice President, Director of Investments,Certified Financial Planner™ with a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from Providence College, a Certified Financial Planner™ designation, and 14 years of experience in the industry, Justin simplifies the financial part of clients’ lives so they can focus on other important matters: “I help make decisions on clients’ retirement, investment strategies, insurance, etc., so that they can spend more time with their kids, concentrate on their careers, or simply have peace of mind knowing they’ll be taken care of.”

Outside of work, Justin is a family man, spending nearly all of his free time with his wife, Suzanne; his children, Charlotte, Cameron, and Rose; his dogs, Ollie and Lily; and his cats, Chloe and Scout. “My kids are young, and that means my hobbies are things like taking walks, going to the library, going on play dates, and playing ‘princesses’ and ‘trucks.’  Someday I’d like to add things like camping, boating, hiking, skiing, etc., but we’re not there yet!”
