AUSTIN, Texas--Bluespring Wealth Partners, LLC (Bluespring), which is focused exclusively on acquiring registered investment adviser and wealth management firms, is proud to announce the hiring of Harold Buckner as Vice President of Business Consulting.
In this new role, he will work directly with both existing and newly acquired Bluespring firms. His responsibilities will include becoming intimately familiar with the business models of these firms, helping them set and achieve growth and financial goals, and leveraging Bluespring’s resources and support services to provide a superior client experience. Buckner will also orchestrate various leadership events and promote idea sharing among the partner firms.
“We know very well that for wealth management firms to grow and evolve, they must be engaged in a culture rich in idea-sharing, continual business analysis, and educational resources,” said Stuart Silverman, President of Bluespring. “Harold’s deep experience in practice management brings these tactics to life for our partner firms. In fact, much of his earlier career influenced the business model we have today.”

He served as a Senior Manager at Accenture during the early part of his career, before moving on to a Senior Vice President role with NFP Corp.
