After working for global financial firms Merrill Lynch, UBS Financial Services, and Deloitte & Touche, Darrell founded PGWM in 2012 on the belief in transparent, client-comes-first environments. Darrell diligently pursues the core values he forged in 20 years of experience: ambitious long-term performance, a positive outlook, and building cooperative partnerships from respect and trust.

Darrell believes nothing worth doing is ever easy. He believes in a commitment to excellence, and emphasizes a high potential, high maintenance approach as his firm’s defining quality. A student of economics, Darrell enjoys immersing himself in the financial world, providing him the competitive edge. He prides himself on constant presence in his office and dependable client accessibility, striving to maximize value for his clients.

Darrell’s professional policy follows the Golden Rule: treat others as you want to be treated. Darrell is a product of the native Bay Area Scouting community – proudly earning the Eagle Scout rank as a youth – and cultivates the values of loyalty and empowerment of others.
