Meet Richard Ellenberger
Get to know our team members! Meet Richard Ellenberger, AIF®, Senior Associate Wealth Advisor, who’s been with Domani Wealth since he started as an intern in 2013.
What would the perfect workday look like for you?
I would meet with clients and respond to emails, and I would try to squeeze in some golf with a prospective new client.
What’s one of your favorite things about your role?
Hearing feedback from clients on how we as a firm have positively affected their lives.
What do you best like about the Hanover office?
I like the small-town feel and culture of Hanover. Clients stop in often, and I love working in such a historic building.
What made you pursue a career in financial advising?
I was always intrigued by business, investing, and finance from a young age. My dad helped me set up an investment account when I was 13, and I began investing my paycheck from being a newspaper delivery boy.
After I returned from my deployment in the Marine Corps, I helped my fellow corps members plan what to do with their combat pay. From there, I was able to build a career focused on helping others achieve their financial goals.
Where did you go to college?
(We Are!) Penn State!
What’s a surprising fact about you?
I’ve gotten back into hiking over the past two years and have hiked almost half of the PA section of the Appalachian Trail. I plan to complete the rest of the portions of the state in 2020!
What’s your favorite food?
Good barbecue – brisket, with mac and cheese.
