Family Office Networks Introduces Carolinas Family Office Association

Family Offices & Trusted Advisors Invited to Membership

Charleston, South Carolina – May 12, 2021 – Family Office Networks announced today the launch of the Carolinas Family Office Association led by local resident Dean Porter. The group will serve one of the fastest growing family office regions in the country. Membership benefits include access to invitation-only family office events, thought leadership content via two weekly newsletters and a luxury magazine, one-on-one individual introductions, membership in the soon-to-launch Carolinas Investment Club, and more. The association will host a virtual kick-off gathering next month.

Dean Porter has 40+ years of experience in the practice of law, investment banking and merchant banking. He previously served as the general counsel and investment strategist of a large family office in New York and practiced real estate and environmental law in New Jersey. He subsequently relocated to Charleston, South Carolina where he developed and managed a legal advisory firm. He is active in the hemp and cannabinoid business as a financier and merchant banker. He will continue to serve FON members as a Special Advisor for cannabis-related industries; however, his work with FON members in the Carolinas will serve all industries.

“The cities of Charleston, Columbia and Greenville/Spartanburg in South Carolina as well as the metropolitan regions of Charlotte, Winston-Salem/Greensboro, and the “research triangle” of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill in North Carolina constitute some of the oldest names in traditional industries and many of the leading names in the high tech sector. Family fortunes, old and new, have been created in the Carolinas. The region is rich with investment opportunities, Porter said.

“Dean’s residence in Charleston, SC, and his strategic connections in both South Carolina and North Carolina, will help FON build a strong association in the Carolinas region.  He has experience working with traditional family offices in New York  and New Jersey and is knowledgeable about the evolution of family office practices in today’s economic climate,” said Andrew Schneider, Founder and CEO of Family Office Networks.

The Carolinas Family Office Association is open to any family office operating within the local area. There will be numerous events, seminars, and special functions that take place throughout the year engineered to deliver the most pertinent information to assist family offices in reaching their goals.

Additional new Family Office Associations will soon launch in Latin America, Charleston and Canada.
