Bary Dedge, Chief Operating Officer
Bary Dedge brings 20+ years’ experience from many different areas of the financial services and insurance industries. From leading a transformational change in London’s Lloyd’s insurance market to evolving traditional brokerage firms into full-service wealth management firms, Bary knows what it takes for (measured, real, identifiable, noticeable) success. He has worked to model and launch new lines of business in traditional brokerage firms to focus on advisor independence; including identifying business model challenges and implementing technology to solve for those challenges. Bary has held executive leadership positions within the financial services industry (including Raymond James and Hilliard Lyons) and understands that the experience of advisors and clients must be second to none, and he has a proven track record to achieve that experience.
Bary has also worked with Temple University’s Fox School of Business managing client consulting engagements with M.B.A students.
Bary engaged with Signature Wealth Group in the fall of 2018 as a part of a consulting engagement to do a “deep dive” of the firm’s current business and long-term growth plan. As a part of the outcome of the consultant report, it was recommended that the firm position a Chief Operating Officer to manage and run the day-to-day operations of the organization, as well as lead the firm through its long-term growth plan. After careful consideration, Bary decided to hang up the consulting hat and join Signature Wealth Group to fill that role. Bary serves as the firm's Chief Operating Officer and is a member of the firm’s executive leadership team.
Bary’s primary responsibilities are to ensure that Signature has the appropriate structure in place to support long term growth; including overseeing the development of competitive offerings to clients and advisors and ensuring the experience of clients and advisors is paramount. In addition, Bary is responsible for managing the People and Operations of Signature Wealth Group.
Bary resides in Center City Philadelphia, PA, and spends time in the Carolinas as necessary to ensure the smooth operations of Signature Wealth.
