Wunderlich, a leading full-service investment firm headquartered in Memphis, recently announced that Michel Rittenberg has joined its wealth management team as manager of the firm’s Miami branch. Rittenberg, a 36-year veteran of the financial services industry, was previously with Raymond James & Associates.
“Michel is a well-respected industry professional who will expand our presence in Miami and Coral Gables,” said Jim Parrish, president of Wunderlich’s Wealth Management division. “Having previously been colleagues at Morgan Keegan & Co. for many years, I know that his positive management style and ability to help elevate advisors’ careers will be a tremendous asset to Wunderlich. I’m thrilled to have him join our team.”
Prior to Raymond James, Rittenberg was a branch manager for Morgan Keegan & Co. in Miami from 2005 to 2012. Before that, he was New York City complex manager for H&R Block Financial Advisor and a managing director for Prudential Global Derivatives in New York. He began his career at Merrill Lynch. Rittenberg is a graduate of Beloit (Wisconsin) College and received his MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University.
“Wunderlich is an impressive firm with a bright future, and I’ll be working with a group of true professionals in the Miami branch,” said Rittenberg, who will oversee the branch that was once part of Dominick & Dominick before being acquired by Wunderlich in 2015. “I am proud and happy to be here and look forward to growing our presence in the greater Miami area in the months ahead.”
