New CCO - Som Houmphanh

Greetings Sentinel Advisors:

When we purchased Sentinel Financial Group in August 2016, there was a plan in place to lean on Merlin Chouinard to continue in his role as Chief Compliance Officer for the firm. Thanks to Merlin, we are right on schedule in making a smooth transition and turn over the reins to Som Houmphanh as CCO, effective June 6th, 2017.

Merlin has given a tremendous amount of his talent and energy over the years to ensure that you, as highly skilled advisors, are compliant in your day to day interactions with your clients while building out your practice. Merlin – we thank you.

I am personally impressed with the skill and knowledge of Som, his relationship with all advisors within Sentinel Group, with the suppliers and regulatory organizations. I am confident that all of you, and the firm, will be in good hands under his tutelage and guidance as the new CCO.

Please join me in thanking Merlin for his leadership over the years and for Som accepting the increased responsibly and key leader of Sentinel Financial Group.
