Roanoke, Virginia – September 1, 2017 – Hillary Sunderland joined the Beacon Wealth Consultants, Inc. team as Chief Investment Officer in our State College, PA office on September 1, 2017.
In her role as Chief Investment Officer, Hillary Sunderland, a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), will take over portfolio management duties for Beacon Wealth Consultants’ LightPoint Portfolio Solutions™ and assume leadership of the firm’s Investment Committee. Additionally, she will bring her many years of experience to develop new investment strategies for the firm.

Hillary graduated magna cum laude from Bucknell University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics and earned the Chartered Financial Analyst® designation in 2009. Shortly after graduating from college, she was deeply impacted through studying what God’s word says about handling money and saw the need to take the message of stewardship, financial literacy and responsible investing to others.
