Proof that MSE degrees prepare people for a wide variety of successful careers, Neil Weissman (BSE '95) was recently named one of the Best in State Wealth Advisors by Forbes. Weissman is managing director of the Weissman Eppler Investment Group of Wells Fargo Advisors in Ann Arbor.

After earning a master’s in materials science and engineering from Stanford University in 1996, Weissman embarked on a seven-year career in the automotive industry, first with Ford Motor Co. and then with parts supplier Collins & Aikman Corp. In 2004, he made the transition to asset planning and wealth management, joining Becker Ventures, a boutique family business in Troy, as executive vice president. In 2008, he joined Telemus Capital Partners, a large RIA in Ann Arbor before being recruited to Wells Fargo in 2011. In his almost seven years with Wells Fargo, Weissman has been a repeat recipient of Wells Fargo Advisors' Premier Advisors designation, a distinction held by a select group of financial advisors within Wells Fargo Advisors, as measured by business production, completion of educational components and professionalism.

Weissman is also a member of the Crain's Detroit Business "40 Under 40" Class of 2010, in which he was honored for his charitable fundraising and his success as a wealth manager.

Congratulations, Neil!
