Our Team

There are few factors more important to success and growth than the strength of the team.

Andrew earned his Bachelors in Business Administration from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, with a major in actuarial science.  The American College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, subsequently awarded him the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designations. 

From June 1988 through June of 2008, Andrew worked for The Holmes Group.  His vision helped move the enterprise from an insurance-centric sole proprietorship to a more holistic Registered Investment Advisory corporation, Estate Strategies, Inc.  Starting as a Financial Analyst, Andrew excelled at all aspects of financial planning and developed the firm’s models and methods of providing investment services to its clients.  In his final years at Estate Strategies’, Andrew served as the company’s president.

In 2008, Andrew left Estate Strategies to establish Wealth Creation Management & Transfer, LLC, a New Jersey based Registered Investment Advisor.  A year later, Wealth CMT was reconstituted with Eric Feder as an equal owner and the two have built the Wealth CMT strategic planning and investment processes in use today.
