RMB Capital has promoted two senior wealth managers, Sue Christoph CFA, CFP and Paul Joyaux, CFP, to partner within RMB Wealth Management.
Christoph and Joyaux each manage and mentor a team of wealth advisors and client associates.
“Both Paul and Sue demonstrate the qualities that we believe are most valuable in terms of our practice area’s long-term success,” says Jeffrey Pearsall, principal and director of wealth management. “They each have the practical expertise that is required to advise clients on complex financial planning and investment management issues, and they genuinely care about clients’ wellbeing and work rigorously to uphold our fiduciary responsibilities. They are role models who are helping us to cultivate our next generation of leaders.”
In 1999, Joyaux began working with RMB’s co-founders at a Fortune 500 investment firm before they left to start RMB in 2005. Joyaux and his current team of six are responsible for approximately 270 clients, many whom reside in southwest Michigan. The firm has a longstanding relationship with Benton Harbor-based Whirlpool Corporation, which offers its executives access to RMB Wealth Management’s services as a sponsored benefit. Joyaux owns a home in the community, where he spends a significant amount of time meeting with clients and supporting local nonprofits. He currently sits on the board of directors for the Curious Kids’ Museum and the investment committee for Lakeland HealthCare.
Christoph joined RMB in 2007, after running the asset management division at a public company and managing assets for large institutional investors. Christoph’s six-person team manages approximately 200 clients, who are primarily based in the Midwest. Christoph works with many Chicago-area attorneys—both advising on their personal plans and investments and collaborating in relation to the trust and estate-planning needs of her other clients. Also active in the nonprofit community, Christoph is a member of the Community Memorial Foundation’s finance and investment committee and a Greenhouse Scholars mentor.
