Locally headquartered wealth management firm hires Daryl Dagit to launch new office and advise clients
Rockford, IL (June 28, 2010) – Savant Capital Management, a locally owned and nationally recognized fee-only wealth management firm headquartered in Rockford, announced today it is expanding into the Peoria area with a new office and hiring a new financial advisor. The new office, located at 7535 N Knoxville Ave, Suite C in Peoria, will be headed up by Daryl Dagit, the newly-hired financial advisor, and Jim Foley, Savant’s Director of Advisory and Business Development.
Savant has been fortunate to expand and grow during the recent recession into additional markets. The firm has hired several new team members in the past year to assist with a growing client base, and they recently added a trust division. Savant has additional offices in Geneva, Freeport, Chicago, Hoffman Estates and Madison.
“Peoria is a logical location for Savant to set up an office,” said Managing Partner Brent Brodeski. “Its population is similar to Rockford’s, where we have had much success with assisting clients with their financial planning needs. We look forward to growing and developing close relationships with clients there.”
Daryl Dagit will work one-on-one with the Peoria-area clients. Dagit has nearly 25 years of experience in the finance industry, and recently joined Savant after serving 17 years at Citigroup, most recently as District Manager. Dagit has received company awards and recognitions for superior performance in the industry, and has supervised a $130 million portfolio, nine managers throughout Illinois and 34 employees.
Dagit is also very active in the community, and has served on finance committees for St. John’s Lutheran Church in Pekin and Illinois State University. He also served as a Marquette Heights City Council member in 1995, and was elected to the Pekin City Council in 2004.
“I look forward to taking the next step in my financial career at Savant,” said Dagit. “Savant’s philosophy of putting clients first and developing a comprehensive financial plan that can bring peace of mind is one I am happy to bring to clients in the Peoria area.”
