Matt Fleissig Named CEO of Pathstone

By Chris Glynn


The $35 billion Pathstone Family Office has named Matt Fleissig its chief executive officer (CEO), replacing joint CEO Steve Braverman and Allan Zachariah, according to the New Jersey company.


In addition to installing Fleissig as CEO, Pathstone FO named chief advisory officer Kelly Maregni its president, the company said.


Braverman and Zachariah—who cofounded Pathstone FO in 2010—had been joint CEO of the $35 billion Pathstone FO, a registered investment advisor (RIA), family office, as well as endowment and foundation service provider.


The company said private equity firm Lovell Minnick Partners put its longtime succession plan involving Fleissig and Maregni in place after purchasing significant ownership in Pathstone FO from Fiduciary Network in November 2019.


Pathstone revealed Braverman, 58, and Zachariah, 63, will become co-chairman of Pathstone Family Office July 1. Braverman and Zachariah had led Harris myCFO before forming Pathstone FO.


Harris myCFO is the private wealth manager business of BMO Harris Bank, a Chicago investment bank.


Fleissig had worked for Goldman Sachs & Company as well as Harris myCFO before joining Pathstone FO in 2010.


Maregni joined Pathstone Family Office after Federal Street Advisors—a financial consultant based in Boston—merged in 2015.  


Pathstone Family Office is headquartered in Englewood, N.J. Earlier in May, Pathstone FO purchased $1.9 billion Advisor Partners as well as part of Eaton Vance WaterOak Advisors.
