“At CMG, we have always operated with the belief that figures and numbers without considering the people behind them are just numbers — it is people that give life and impart meaning to the work that we do. While charitable contributions have always played a key role in my clients’ planning process, it was important to do my best to provide the best possible advice for them,” said Donna Nadler, Senior Partner, Capital Management Group.

Nadler has worked in the financial industry since 1985. She joined Capital Management Group in 2005 after merging her previous company, Nadler Financial Services with Capital Management Group.

At CMG, we take pride in continuing our education so that we are always at the vanguard of best practice — Donna’s CAP certification is the perfect example of that,” said Thomas Mingone, Managing Partner, Capital Management Group.
