As they considered where to move their practice, the advisors decided the growth resources offered by Ameriprise – notably the firm’s financial planning platform and coaching programs – would best help them increase their revenue in the coming years.

Neckes, who has 38 years of experience serving clients, said about the move, “Ameriprise supports the way we want to grow, which includes maintaining two office locations in Connecticut and Florida, so we can continue to provide the comprehensive advice our clients expect from us. I feel confident that our clients are going to be taken care of for decades to come because my team has robust capabilities and support at their fingertips.”

Scott Zingone added, “The reason we moved firms is about growth. We need more sophisticated tools and support to continue the exponential growth we’ve achieved over the last few years through strong client referrals. The leadership support and coaching programs Ameriprise provides is impressive – we have access to experts across the firm who are dedicated to helping us grow and service more clients.”

Ameriprise Complex Director Stacy Thomson, who supports the team along with Ameriprise Complex Director Dan Landrau, said, “We’re passionate about helping Ameriprise advisors grow by developing the tools and coaching they need to bring their client experience to the next level. Marilyn, Kyle, and Scott have the full power of our nationally-branded firm behind them, and we’re excited to help them achieve their ambitious growth goal.”
