Bank Investment Consultant magazine’s recently released “Top 50 Bank Reps” list featured seven financial professionals from PrimeVest Financial Services, one of the United States’ largest broker-dealers exclusively serving financial institutions. PrimeVest was one of just three broker-dealers with more than six representatives in the top 50.

“Our business is all about helping others so, by nature, individual recognition isn’t the motivation that fuels these reps,” said PrimeVest President and CEO Randy Ciccati. “But whenever they do receive recognition for their efforts, it’s well-deserved. We’re extremely proud of our PrimeVest reps that ranked among the Bank Investment Consultant top 50, and we certainly congratulate them on a terrific 2006.”

The honored PrimeVest representatives included Jeff Krall (No. 31; Fulton Financial Advisors), John Holmes (No. 35; Fulton Financial Advisors), Tim Novatnack (No. 38; Fulton Financial Advisors), Melanie Weischwill (No. 40; First Victoria), Martin Barinaga (No. 45; Redstone FCU); David Layo (No. 46; Fulton Financial Advisors), and Al Yancoskie (No. 49; Fulton Financial Advisors). Another quartet of PrimeVest financial professionals received honorable mention: Annette Martin (Fulton Financial Advisors), Greg Malin (Fulton Financial Advisors), Jason Baver (Fulton Financial Advisors), and Tom Lindia (Fulton Financial Advisors).

“It’s an honor to be recognized in a publication like this along with my peers,” said Krall. “We have a great program with Fulton Financial Advisors and PrimeVest, and I’m proud to be working with it. My approach isn’t revolutionary. I try to see as many people as I can in a day, and I help them. If you do that, good things happen.”

With selection based on a production-to-retail deposits ratio, the Bank Investment Consultant top 50 contained 10 individual million-dollar producers, a select group which included Weischwill, who ranked as PrimeVest’s top producer of 2006. Weischwill was the only woman ranked in the top 50 to exceed $1 million in production.
