From Intern to CEO

Buckingham CEO Adam Birenbaum hadn’t envisioned a future in the financial services industry. He planned on being a sports agent, working with legends in the making. While in law school he took an unpaid summer internship at Buckingham, and the rest is history.

The passion and “smarts” of the team at Buckingham, along with the vision of the firm, inspired Adam and ignited an interest in the field. He signed-on as a full-time employee and rose through the ranks to CEO. During Adam’s tenure he, and the larger Buckingham team, have grown Buckingham Strategic Wealth and Buckingham Strategic Partners, collectively Buckingham Wealth Partners, collective assets to more than $50B.

Adam recently sat down with Louis Diamond of the Diamond Consultants podcast. They talked about the history of Buckingham, the relationship the firm has with Focus Financial Partners, and how Adam believes their M&A activities provide a much broader value to the firm beyond inorganic growth.
