WILLIAM D. HUTCHENS, JR., CFA®
Managing Director and Head of Core Growth Equity Strategy; Head of Institutional Investments
With over 30 years of investment experience, I began my career at State Street Bank and Trust where I picked up my passion for the stock market while responsible for portfolio accounting. My diverse background includes portfolio management and securities analysis with both Taylor Investments, the predecessor firm of Granite, and Wang Development and Investment Corporation. I gained experience with institutional consulting while at the Hannah Group.
In 1995, I founded Hutchens Investment Management where I provided investment management for individuals and institutions. The firm offered a variety of separately managed portfolios in equities and multi-asset classes.
I’m thrilled to return to my roots by coming back to Granite Investment Advisors, with many of my clients. I look forward to the opportunity of providing growth investment services to the firm, ensuring our clients have a broad range of investment offerings.
