As vice president - financial planning at Pratt Collard Advisory Partners, Colin guides current and prospective clients through the process of achieving various financial goals, including retirement planning, investment management, and employee benefits.

Early in his senior year at Canisius College, Colin joined Harold C. Brown & Co.  as the firm’s research intern. In that role, he assisted the head of HCB’s research department and outside analysts as well as the firm’s advisors in various research-related efforts. After completing his undergraduate studies, Colin was asked to join the research department of HCB full-time. As research assistant and junior analyst, he gained a more in-depth understanding of equity analysis and was subsequently appointed to HCB’s Mutual Fund Committee.

Upon HCB’s dissolution at the end of 2011, Colin was invited to join the new partnership of Pratt Collard Advisory Partners. In June 2012, Colin enrolled in the Advisor Mastery Program, from which he graduated in August 2014. He is now authorized by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (CFP Board) to use the certified financial planner and CFP® certification marks in accordance with CFP Board certification and renewal requirements.
