Doug provides clients with investment guidance that is tailored to their distinct circumstances. Additionally, he implements long-term, goals-based wealth management strategies that help clients pursue their dreams and position them for long-term success.

Growing up, Doug’s grandfather was a successful business owner. He was the founder and CEO of National Gypsum Company, a building products company headquartered in Buffalo, NY. The concentrated stock position of the family holdings and the volatility of the stock reacting to various news events affecting the company caused Doug to learn about the importance of diversification. It was a life-long lesson he shares with clients.
Prior to Hightower, Doug served as a Vice President and Senior Financial Advisor for National Wealth Management, LLC at Wells Fargo Advisors FiNet. Previously, he served as a Vice President and Financial Advisor at Merrill Lynch. Doug earned the Certified Financial Manager designation from Merrill Lynch in 2002, and is a certified NYS Partnership for Long-Term Care Insurance agent.
Doug currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Rotary Club of Williamsville, NY, and he is a past President of The Bond Club of Buffalo. He lives in Amherst, NY with his wife, Connie, and their children.
