As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ professional, Solomon implements a discipline for our client's investment strategy to help manage risk and returns. 

Early in his career, Solomon was fortunate enough to have had the pleasure of working alongside one of the hardest working men in America, his father. As partners in a corporate car service business in New York City servicing large law firms and financial institutions, he learned the number one rule of always putting the clients' interests above everything else.  This value coupled with integrity and hard work helped build a very successful business. His twenty-two years of industry experience with firms such as Gruntal & Co. and Smith Barney have provided a wealth of financial knowledge. In his current role, Solomon turned the business acumen he acquired into the guiding principals at The Richmond Group Wealth Advisors.  This has been the key to help build a practice that he is extremely proud of.

As a responsible citizen and resident of Staten Island, he continues to actively support the community and local charities.  Solomon proudly serves as a Board member for several organizations: Executive Board Member of the Staten Island Jewish Community Center and Co-Chair of the JCC Sunrise Summer Camp. Chairman of the Board, Staten Island Chamber of Commerce Foundation.  Immediate Past Chair of the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, Past Board Member of the Boys Scouts Staten Island Council, James Vuricko Foundation and the Small Business Development Corporation.  Recipient of the 2008 Boy Scouts Good Scout Award, and the 2008 20 under 40 Award by the SIEDC.  Recipient of the 2013 Louis R. Miller Business Leadership Award, which is based on involvement in the Staten Island business community and its local community organizations.


Solomon maintains a regiment of physical fitness and coaches several youth organized sports teams. He is a proud family man, sharing a home on the South Shore of Staten Island with his wife Kimberly and their two sons, Andrew and Jake.
