  • Christopher M. Zelesnick, Sr.

    Senior Managing Director

    “I believe the best way to build a wealth management practice is to build it around the financial advisors, for the financial advisors.”

    Christopher (Chris) Zelesnick is a senior managing director and head of Ziegler Wealth Management. In this role, Chris is responsible for leading the growth and development of the wealth management division as well as those under his charge. His core business belief is to build the practice around and for the financial advisors. Prior to joining Ziegler, Chris was a senior vice president with Advisors Asset Management, Inc., where he was responsible for developing and directing the eastern sales division of investment solutions partners.

    Prior to AAM, Chris was named vice president and divisional director of the H&R Block Financial Advisors Group in December 1999. He led the company’s efforts to provide training throughout the organization, to develop a team structure to better serve its customers, and to lead the company’s eastern division. Formerly a vice president with OLDE Discount, Chris played a leadership role in transitioning H&R Block’s purchase of the company. During his 13 years at OLDE, Chris held various positions ranging from financial advisor to regional manager.

    As a financial advisor, Chris was at the top of his field — a level of performance that has carried through to his management and leadership career.

    Chris attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
