He will also coordinate the various wealth management services required, including investment management, estate/tax/cash flow planning, trust, private banking, and family office services.
“Welcoming Chris to our team expands our ability to serve our clients with highly experienced advisors,” says Dave DiLuigi, Regional President for the Greater Washington and Baltimore regions. “We are excited to add his commitment to clients and involvement in the community to our team.”
Chris has over 22 years of experience in the financial and investment management industries. Prior to joining Wilmington Trust, he served as a senior analyst in Equity Research at B.

Chris’s addition to the team highlights Wilmington Trust’s continued, positive momentum, stemming from its October 2020 expansion  of an enhanced, client-centric operating model throughout all of its Wealth Management divisions. Designed to move decision making and resources closer to clients and drive growth through an increased focus on the client and advisor, this relationship-led approach also culminated in the hiring of 18 new wealth advisors and strategists, which increased staff in key geographies such as New York, Los Angeles, Florida, Baltimore, and Pennsylvania. The operating model has been implemented in the firm’s Family Wealth division for over four years before incorporating it across all of wealth management.
Wilmington Trust’s Wealth Management offers a wide array of personal trust, planning, fiduciary, asset management, private banking, and family office services designed to help high-net-worth individuals and families grow, preserve, and transfer wealth. Wilmington Trust focuses on serving families with whom it can build long-term relationships, many of which span multiple generations.
