It is an honor for me to be named the CEO at this time of exciting development for our organization,” says Wahba. “I will continue to build on the foundation established by the outstanding contributions of our people for nearly a century. I am excited and look forward to helping the firm continue to be a place filled with exceptional people delivering exceptional client service locally, nationally and internationally.”
