Bill Hoover Joins Broadleaf Partners 

It is with great pleasure that Jeff and I announce the arrival of William Hoover as President and Chief Operating Officer of Broadleaf Partners, LLC.  Bill joins our firm as an equity partner after spending over sixteen years at Wall Street wirehouse firms serving the financial needs of high net worth individuals and institutions.   
Bringing a capable sales and marketing focused investment professional on board has been a longer term goal of ours as an organization and now that we are over three years old, the timing for such a move is perfect.  In addition to meeting the needs of his own clients under the Broadleaf umbrella, Bill will help expand our marketing efforts for our growth equity portfolio and build upon the firm’s financial advisory capabilities. 
As the firm’s founder, I will remain Chief Executive and Chief Investment Officer, continuing to devote my time to investment research and the management of client portfolios.  Jeff will assist me with this role as he has always done as Director of Research and Vice President of Operations.    
I have known Bill on a professional and social basis for the past ten years and have long admired him for his personal integrity and ability to cultivate lasting, long term relationships.  I am very excited about Bill’s decision to join us as we begin a new stage in our evolution as a world class investment management organization. 
On the personal front, Bill and his wife Paige keep busy in their home town of Bath, Ohio, raising their five growing children.  Bill is a graduate of the College of Wooster, where he earned a degree in Business Economics and was Captain of the men’s tennis team. In addition to serving as an officer on the Revere Local School District Board of Education, Bill is also a Trustee of The Canton Student Loan Foundation and a graduate of Leadership Stark County.
Please join us in welcoming Bill Hoover to Broadleaf Partners, LLC.
