Brinckerhoff serves the Central Region which includes the firm’s existing retail offices in Denver. Brinckerhoff joins the firm’s other Regional Executives, Frank Epinger (Los Angeles), Frank Story (New York/Tri State) and most recently Rob Spawn (Northern Region), to strengthen the firm’s expansion efforts through the selective addition of advisors, branch offices, and AUM. Bill is based in Denver, Colorado and reports to Senior Vice President and Head of Private Wealth Management Branch Network, Don Gorsch.
Brinckerhoff is a well-respected wealth management veteran with over 30 years of experience committed to retail wealth management.

Prior to joining Wedbush Securities, Bill served as a Senior Practice Management Consultant with Morgan Stanley, where he leveraged the firm’s solid platform. Throughout his tenures, Brinckerhoff built advisor offices and incrementally increased the area’s overall productivity.
