RICHMOND, VA – May 14, 2018 – JoycePayne Partners, a leading fee-only financial planning firm, announced today a refreshed brand and new name: Agili. The firm also revealed members of its new leadership team as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.

Michael Joyce, CFA, CFP®, former President of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) and wealth management expert with more than 35 years of experience, founded the firm in Bethlehem, PA in 1993.

In reflecting on the firm’s history and 25th anniversary, Joyce recognized the need to better reinforce the firm’s expertise, service to clients, and differentiators. That process resulted in a new leadership team and refreshed brand.

Agili, pronounced a – JILL – ee, is a derivative of the Latin word for agile and reflects the firm’s ability to serve its clients’ best interests by being smart, thoughtful, and nimble at all times. The tag line, Your Personal CFO, underscores the breadth of the firm’s services to help clients fulfill their financial goals.

“Agili’s Personal CFO approach is unique and goes beyond traditional wealth management or investing,” noted Joyce. “We assist clients with a variety of financial needs, such as helping them with the purchase of a car or negotiating a compensation package with their employer.”

Agili also has named a new leadership team. Joyce will continue to lead the firm as President and to oversee all firm functions. Other members of the leadership team include:

  • Marilee Falco, CFP®, ChFC: A Principal and Financial Strategist, Falco will lead the firm’s Bethlehem, PA office.
  • Jamie Malone, CFP®, CPA: A Principal and Financial Strategist, Malone leads the firm’s Financial Planning team.
  • Cynthia Joyce, CPA: As Chief Operating Officer, Joyce oversees financial, budgeting, human resources, and office operations for the firm.
  • Van Nguyen, FPQPTM: A Principal and Client Services Manager, Nguyen leads the firm’s Client Services team.

This five-member leadership team will manage Agili’s growth and drive strategy for the firm.

“Establishing this new leadership team highlights the incredible depth of talent at Agili and positions the firm for continued success,” said Malone.

As it celebrates its 25th anniversary, the firm remains committed to serving clients by customizing holistic plans and to managing their financial life. Agili provides clients with a team of experts dedicated to understanding the full spectrum of their financial needs and goals.
