Craig N. Robson
- Founding Principal And Managing Director
- Craig is the founder of Regent Peak Wealth Advisors. Prior to Regent Peak, Craig served 25 years as both Founder and Managing Director of Robson & Associates, a high net worth wealth advisory practice within Merrill Lynch. At Regent Peak, he serves as Managing Director and sets the firm’s overall vision and strategy. The creation of Regent Peak Wealth Advisors, an independent advisory firm, is a direct result of Craig’s desire to provide all relationships with objective advice free from the conflicts of interest that might come from large institutions.
Craig earned a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from Lehigh University in 1991. For the next 3 years Craig provided consulting services on behalf of Accenture Consulting, primarily within their manufacturing and information technology divisions, to both publicly traded and privately held corporations. An unexpected opportunity to employ his practice management experiences within the financial services industry arose and in 1994 Craig embarked on creating a unique wealth advisory offering within Merrill Lynch.
