Joe began his career with PNC Bank in Pittsburgh, PA, where he lived through the age of 34 before moving to the Charlotte, NC, area. He remained at the bank for ten years while attending graduate school and law school—both through evening programs. Beginning as a management trainee, he developed intensive experience in consumer and commercial lending, spending eight of the ten years at the bank either running branch offices or lending to middle-market companies. In his final two years, he was promoted to U.S. Eastern Regional Executive, where he managed an 18-state region from the Mississippi to the Eastern Seaboard. While traveling to his offices in Raleigh and Greenville, SC, he saw the growth and potential in the Southeast. After considering Greenville, Atlanta, Raleigh, and Charlotte, he returned to Charlotte as the overall favorite.
While adjusting to life in the Charlotte area, he worked as a bank consultant for companies such as Bank of America, Wachovia, Capital One, First Union, and others. He worked as a commercial banker again for a short time while studying for the NC bar.
Joe routinely speaks to groups of CEOs, CFOs, attorneys, and CPAs on financial statement analysis and is sought after for speaking engagements on financial analysis for closely held companies, wealth transfer, and related matters. During his tenure as a commercial banker, he received the Certified Commercial Lender designation (CCL), which required a demonstration of mastery of various commercial loan, leasing, factoring, and asset-based lending topics. Joe has also taught at Queen’s University in Charlotte at the university’s Certified Financial Planner program (CFP) for a new “capstone course.” It was offered to help the students combine what they had learned to develop comprehensive financial plans.
He resides in Waxhaw, NC, with his family in an equestrian neighborhood. He regularly sees clients and friends in his home in the evenings or on weekends when they need an objective opinion and some solid advice.
