Partner Profile: Doug Stewart

He started buying stocks with lawn mowing money at the young age of 9. So it’s not surprising this enterprising young man grew into a highly regarded wealth management professional listed as one of the top 1,000 advisors (the February 2010 edition of Barron’s magazine included Doug as one of the top 1,000 financial advisors in the U.S. Barron’s also ranked Stewart as the no. 9 financial advisor in Virginia).

Father of three, scuba diver, founder of a school, life long community activist, cancer survivor and avid Hokie fan, Doug’s passion for life in and outside the office is evident. Any personal challenges are faced with energy and enthusiasm. And this summer, Doug has decided to push himself beyond anything he’s ever done before by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Physically and mentally challenging, on the 7th day of hiking, Doug and fellow climbers will reach the 19,340 ft summit of Africa’s tallest mountain.

As Doug says, “I think anytime you push yourself you find out more about yourself than you ever knew. I also think it’s a place where people can ‘leave a little baggage’ and come back with a lighter load and refreshed outlook.”

“Climbing the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro is akin to the incredible climb and journey I’ve experienced at Cary Street Partners. We are all achieving personal and professional goals there every day and I look forward to the extraordinary days which lie ahead.”
