InvestmentNews’ 2017 Alexandra Armstrong Award for Lifetime Achievement in Financial Planning goes to Peggy Ruhlin, chief executive officer of Budros Ruhlin & Roe.
This annual award celebrates female pioneers in the field of financial planning. It recognizes women who have had long careers as advisers, a track record of leadership in the industry, and a demonstrated commitment to serve as a role model or mentor to other women. It also acknowledges women who have earned the admiration and respect of their peers.
The inaugural award was given to Alexandra Armstrong, chairwoman and founder of Armstrong Fleming & Moore Inc., in 2015.
The recipient of this year’s Alexandra Armstrong Award was chosen by InvestmentNews’ selection committee and will be honored at a leadership event dedicated to women in the advice industry, and including the Women to Watch list, on March 13, 2018, at The Pierre in New York.
