Dave Mullen was with Merrill Lynch for 26 years. His first six years in the business were spent as a successful Financial Advisor, consistently ranked in the top 10% of his peer group for doing business. He also managed a high-performing office while maintaining his client base.

As a result, Dave gave up his clients and became a full-time manager in 1986.

The Atlanta office was a top-five revenue-earning office nationally. He was a National Sales Manager in New York. His last position was as the Managing Director of the Colorado Mountain Complex with responsibility for six branch offices in Colorado and Wyoming.
