Deal strengthens Bluespring Wealth Partners’ Southeast presence and commitment to building around talented young wealth management leaders
AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bluespring Wealth Partners, LLC, an industry-leading acquirer and partner of best-in-class wealth management firms, today announced the acquisition of the businesses of Cristina Briboneria and Eric Pucciarelli, two independent financial advisors affiliated with oXYGen Financial, Inc. The pair will join Bluespring Wealth Partners’ Atlanta-based hub, led by Brandon Hayes and Ted Jenkin, which was acquired in 2019 and continues to operate under the oXYGen Financial brand.
“Cristina and Eric are two young and highly talented leaders who bring unique and complementary skill sets to the table,” said Stuart Silverman, President of Bluespring Wealth Partners. “We’re excited about the role they will play in our expansion throughout Atlanta and the broader Southeastern U.S. and believe they will make outstanding partners for many years to come.”
The addition of Briboneria and Pucciarelli will enable individuals from all three organizations to focus on their respective strengths, become more deeply specialized across a number of areas, and ultimately deliver a better and broader service experience to their clients.
“By merging with Bluespring Wealth Partners, we will now have access to a deep bench of resources through which to serve our clients and fuel the growth of our organization,” said Briboneria, Managing Director and Private CFO at oXYGen Financial. “The application of Bluespring Wealth Partners’ consulting and development resources will help us to elevate every aspect of what we do.”
Briboneria and Pucciarelli oversee approximately $260 million in collective client assets, bringing the total assets under management of the personnel at Bluespring Wealth Partners’ Atlanta hub to roughly $1 billion. Briboneria, who earned the CFP®, AWMA®, and ADPA® designations, is one of the top female financial advisors in the Atlanta region. Meanwhile, Pucciarelli, who has the CRPC® designation and an MBA, has consistently ranked as a top oXYGen Financial producer. Both financial professionals received NAIFA-Atlanta’s prestigious Top Advisors Under 40 award.
“Cristina and I are excited to take our practices to the next level,” added Pucciarelli, Managing Director and Private CFO at oXYGen Financial. “This move is integral to maximizing the value we provide to clients and ultimately delivering a world-class financial planning experience.”
The acquisitions, completed in January, mark Bluespring Wealth Partners’ first two transactions of 2022. To date, Bluespring Wealth Partners has announced four acquisitions in 2022. In 2021, the firm successfully completed five acquisitions.
