Friday Feels April 6

Today marks the end of my first week with Rubicon Representation in Dallas, TX.  I was brought on to spearhead the new Retail Investment Sales Team and piggyback off the momentum my colleagues already have going. I am very excited about the transition over here and look forward to hitting the ground running! Click to the “What I’m Working On” tab to view more on our firm.
