At AUBWM, Jess led a team of 10 investment professionals in the trust and asset management division, overseeing $2.4 billion in AUM. He also built and led the RIA division with 22 employees and $1.7 billion in AUM.

Maxwell Wallace serves as Managing Director, Client and Trust Services at Dover Advisors. He brings 25 years of trust and wealth management experience and, like Mr. Ellington, joins Dover from Atlantic Union Bank Wealth Management.

Wealth Advisor Growth Network (WAGN) supported Dover Advisors’ journey to independence by providing strategic advisory services.

As a result, Dover has created a full-service wealth management firm that will enhance the client experience and create long-term net worth for constituents.

“WAGN was delighted to leverage our expertise and industry connections for the Dover team,” said John Phoenix, Wealth Advisor Growth Network partner. “We believe that when RIAs outsource functions beyond their core business, including compliance and marketing, they grow faster and can focus on their business and customer relationships.”
