(TPFG), a wealth management innovator and leader in Self-Directed Brokerage Account (SDBA) Management just announced a reorganization of its Executive leadership team that will position the firm for continued success in the fast-growing group retirement space and well beyond. 

Key Leadership  

We are very pleased to announce today that Chris Mills has joined TPFG as our newly appointed Chief Executive Officer.  

Former CEO, Megan Meade, along with Nick Scalzo (who had begun his transition from Co-CEO in 2022) will sit as managing members of the TPFG Board. Former Deputy Chair, James Molloy will be Advisor to the managing members.  

Chris Mills will oversee all aspects of TPFG’s business with the aim of fostering collaboration across all teams and departments, bringing his strategic expertise to drive TPFG forward. 

Chris brings over two decades of leadership and business experience in the financial services space. During his 21-year tenure at Kovack Securities (FINRA B/D) and Kovack Advisors (SEC Registered RIA), he served as Executive Vice President, and then as President where he played a pivotal role in managing the day-to-day operations of both entities. He is a Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA) and holds multiple securities licenses. Prior to his career in finance, Chris served in the U.S. Navy for eight years.  

“After an extensive search, we couldn’t be happier to have Chris take the helm as our new CEO.  Chris is not only a seasoned veteran of the financial industry, but a veteran of the United States Navy which is an honor for us,” said Megan Meade, Manager Member. 

Innovation Requires Transformation 

The new leadership move coincides with TPFG’s continued transformation and expansion to provide financial advisors and RIAs with a cutting-edge platform for SDBA management, digital paperwork solutions, enhanced cybersecurity, and a new exclusive P4 TAMP solution.
