McKonly & Asbury Goes From One MP to Two

Michael Hoffner

Camp Hill, Pa.-based McKonly & Asbury (FY18 net revenue of $9.6 million) announced that Michael Hoffner has been sharing the MP role with Kurt Trimarchi as of Jan. 1.

Trimarchi joined McKonly & Asbury in 2003 and became MP in 2015. Hoffner has been with the firm for nearly 15 years and has served on its executive committee.

The decision to create a co-MP arrangement stems from rapid growth in 2019, both internally and within the firm’s affiliated companies, the firm announced. Trimarchi and Hoffner will be responsible for firm strategy and growth, client engagement, team development, corporate culture and community presence.

Trimarchi says of Hoffner: “He has been a key leader since the day he joined the firm and instrumental in assisting my role in leading the firm, even before I was named managing partner. This announcement is a mere formality of the role he has already been performing. More importantly, what it means to our firm and our clients, is that we will continue to focus on controlled growth and exceptional client service.”

Hoffner says the arrangement will allow the pair to leverage their strengths. “Bifurcating the role will allow us to collectively meet the administrative needs of the firm, invest further in the development of our team, serve our dynamic and growing client base, and seek out additional opportunities for growth.”

Growth last year included acquisition of a third office in Bloomsburg, Pa., and an ownership stake in Dale Carnegie Mid-Atlantic so the firm can offer leadership, team building and staff development to clients while expanding their presence into the Maryland, Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia.

Also in 2019, McKonly & Asbury’s affiliate, Bridgeford Trust Company – an independent, full service trust company with South Dakota Trust powers – has seen exponential growth providing fiduciary services to domestic and international families.
