The Grey Ledge Team
President and CEO
President and Chief Executive Officer Kenneth R. Russell, Jr. draws on nearly four decades of professional experience in financial and investment management to dynamically lead Grey Ledge Advisors’ team of passionate professionals. Throughout his career, he has provided entrepreneurs and investment clients advice in investment and asset allocation strategy, estate planning, and pre- and post-sale transaction planning.
Ken is fiercely devoted to the Fiduciary Standard rule, which ensures that all Grey Ledge clients have confidence that their advisors act prudently and will always put the client’s best interest first. Through Ken’s devotion and leadership, the Grey Ledge team is squarely focused on providing customized investment solutions and wealth management advice that assists clients in navigating both the joyful and challenging transitions in their financial lives.
Ken is a longtime resident of Wallingford, and when not at the office, he can be found enjoying the outdoors and the Connecticut shoreline — boating and fishing in Long Island Sound, or just enjoying his summer home in Old Lyme. Ken also enjoys hitting the links, but believes his golf game “is designed to make others feel better about theirs.”
Ken is a graduate of Rutgers College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics, and holds an M.B.A. in Finance from New York University’s Leonard Stern School of Business. He is active in many charitable causes and is currently on the Board of Directors of LEAP in New Haven.
Prior to joining Grey Ledge Advisors, Ken was a Managing Director and Market Director for US Trust (Bank of America Private Bank) in New Haven. Other previous positions include President of the New England region for GenSpring Family Offices, a multi-family office providing investment and tax advice to ultra-high net worth families, and Managing Director at J.P. Morgan Chase Private Bank.
