In a succession move, Richard "Rich" Donnelly, who founded his registered investment adviser in 1997, will become a regional director at EP Wealth. Two next-generation financial planners, Bradley Owen and Adam Werner, at his firm will assume new roles — and all will become partners.

Over the past 12 months, EP Wealth Advisors has acquired Private Capital Management Associates in San Mateo, Calif., and Millie Capital Management in Walnut Creek, Calif. The Donnelly acquisition is EP Wealth's second since taking a minority investment from Wealth Partners Capital Group, a financial services holding company, in July 2017.
