Cetera® Advisors Honors CCR Wealth Management as Ensemble of the Year at Annual Awards Conference

[Westborough, MA] – Mark Palmerino, financial consultant and partner at CCR Wealth Management, recently attended Cetera Advisors’ annual awards conference where he accepted the Ensemble of the Year award on behalf of his firm. This team of top producing, seasoned professionals gained this honor by leveraging distinct backgrounds, credentials, and experience to build solid, customized plans and portfolios in the name of clients’ best interests.

The annual conference was aimed at bringing together advisors from across the country to celebrate the accomplishments of 2016. The event, held at the Ritz Carlton in Cancun, Mexico, featured presentations from the Cetera executive team and some of the industry’s preeminent thought leaders. Attendees left inspired to continue aiming for the highest levels of professional achievement and success.

Erinn Ford, President of Cetera Advisors, commented, “The commitment and drive exhibited by our advisors are unparalleled, and we’re honored to celebrate their successes over the last year. We take great pride in the support we provide our advisors, and look forward to continuing to help them achieve and surpass their business goals in 2017 and beyond.”

Another highlight of the conference was Cetera Advisors’ successful fundraiser through Caring Cetera, an advisor-initiated charitable fund (501c3) created to aid advisors and their families during times of personal tragedy, responding to disasters in the communities where Cetera Advisors practices, and to help leave a “generosity footprint” in the communities where its events are held. Thanks to the generosity of attending advisors, over $32,000 was raised during the four day conference. Over half of the donations are going towards El Pozo de Vida, a charity which raises money and mobilizes efforts to fight human trafficking. The remaining contributions will be donated to Caring Cetera to continue helping advisors during times of need.
