William Blair team celebrated the anniversary of its Atlanta office. The firm celebrated by hosting a client luncheon where technology insights and trends were discussed. The Atlanta office opened in 2016 following two additional private wealth teams that were added in William Blair’s San Francisco, New York and Boston offices in 2015. The Atlanta private wealth management team of Kim Tyson Chenevey, Joel Dobbs, Craig Savage and Andy Thompson serve high-net-worth individuals and their families, business owners, foundations, and endowments.
William Blair’s global head of private wealth management group, Ryan DeVore noted that “This tremendous team has been a welcome addition to William Blair. Their financial expertise and acumen has been vital to serving our clients in Atlanta and the Southeast region. As we continue to selectively expand our private wealth and William Blair coverage across the United States, it is imperative that we continue to find wonderful professionals like the team we have in Atlanta.”
William Blair’s co-head of research group on technology, media, and communications, Bhavan Suri explained to the group that entities tied to robust data like cloud computing and storage, online retailing, and a new age of telecommunications will continue to see significant growth throughout the year. During his discussion, Suri noted that the expansion of software as a service technology and robots with artificial intelligence are two of the most exciting themes within the sector.
