“With an overwhelming array of vendor solutions and affiliation models to choose from, top-end advisor teams need an ally and skilled guide helping navigate the complexity of independence and to fully understand monetization decisions,” said Michael Papedis, CEO, and Founder of Fusion. “Megan thoroughly understands the needs of independent advisors and will be applying that expertise to help RIAs navigate the increasingly competitive space for M&A, RIA launch, custodial selection, and strategic partner affiliations.”

Ms. Hausmann has 12 years of talent consulting and business development experience in the financial services industry that spans a broad spectrum of clients in the wealth management space including wealth managers, private bankers, and Registered Investment Advisors. Most recently she was a Partner, and Team Leader of Talent Acquisition for the Wealth Management Practice for Novum Group. Previously she began her consulting career as a member of the Banking Recruiting Practice of Armstrong Financial Group.

“I have followed Mike throughout his career and cannot think of a better expert to partner my talents with,” said Megan Hausmann. “This, paired with the strong movement of captive advisors towards independence or RIAs seeking monetization through M&A, allows me to provide expertise to advisors in all lifecycles of their careers.”
