My Profile

Drew R. Pickard, AWMA®

Senior Vice President

One of the greatest privileges I have is when my clients entrust me to safeguard their hard-earned assets. I am dedicated to preserving their accumulated wealth. This requires a long-term commitment to allow for the investment strategies to work the way they are designed to work -- over time.

Janney provides the business model necessary for me to help my clients plan for their future. Having joined the firm in 2005 I quickly learned how the products, services and investment specialists available allowed me to provide a comprehensive range of investment strategies toward helping my clients reach their objectives.

Prior to joining Janney, I worked at Morgan Stanley as a Senior Vice President and also with First Miami Securities, specializing in tax-free municipal bonds. Before joining the investment field, I owned a pharmaceutical wholesale business.

As it is becoming increasingly necessary to provide my clients with the most updated information, strategies and regulatory updates I hold my FINRA Series 7, 63 and 31 securities licenses as well as life, health and annuities licenses.  I am a Graduate Alumnus of the Wealth Management Certification Program from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania in conjuction with Janney's internal education division, Janney University, where I obtained the Accredited Wealth Management AdvisorSM certification.

I am Founder and Moderator of Business People We Trust – a group of dedicated business people delivering quality work to the people they serve. My previous service includes capacities as Founder and past Moderator of Go Givers, past President of my Homeowners Association, former President of Circle of Love, an organization which helps children with cancer; former President of the Hollywood Wildcat Soccer Club; former member of the Executive Board of the David Posnack JCC in Davie, Florida; former Chairman of New Leadership of Israel Bonds as well as serving on the boards of Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce and Weston Business Council and the Prestige Club, which helps agencies in Broward County serving low-income or sick children. I also sat on various committees associated with the United Way and the American Cancer Society.

Happily married to Sherri for 39 years we have three children and three grandchildren.  In our spare time, we enjoy walking, spending quality time with family and friends, golf, traveling and helping others who may be in need.
