Neal joins the WAAM board with over 25 years of experience in asset management and investment banking, working with senior executives and some of the largest companies and families in the country. He currently is a Managing Director at Alex. Brown & Co, which was spun out of Deutsche Bank in 2016, where he also previously served as Managing Director. Neal is passionate about ‘do good’ causes and was drawn to WAAM because of its ability to change people’s lives with music. Neal lives in Hoboken, NJ with his wife Sophie, near where he grew up and never expected to return.  In his spare time he can often be found chasing a small white ball around Upper Montclair Country Club, traveling, attending theatre and experimenting with new recipes. He is thrilled to join the board of WAAM.
