“I love the excitement and challenges of the stock market which creates new opportunities every day. My escape from the daily roller coaster ride of tracking market trends takes me outdoors, where you will find me golfing, skiing, hunting, fishing or mountain biking. I’m a second-generation member and current treasurer of the Adirondack Land Owner’s Association, where my family enjoys spending time together at Livingston Lake.”

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.
