Steve founded Salley Wealth Management in 2009 after spending 10 years with several Wall Street firms and holds the Accredited Asset Management Specialist (AAMS) designation from the College for Financial Planning. He fully believes that being an independent advisor provides his clients the financial confidence they deserve knowing that he is free to recommend only those products and services that address his clients’ needs, without quotas or pressure to use proprietary products. Salley Wealth Management is truly a reflection of Steve’s personality: honest, reliable and committed to helping you.
A northern Virginia resident since 1989, Steve was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut and grew up in western Pennsylvania. He graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and later taught with Fairfax County Public Schools.
Steve is very active in his community serving in the past on the Board of Directors of the Vienna Tysons Regional Chamber of Commerce for numerous years as well as actively participating in a number of charities and non-profits in the metropolitan area.
Steve and his wife Lisa have been married for 23 years and have three sons, Benjamin, Zachary and Alexander. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, camping, golfing, exercising, reading, traveling to Cape Cod and learning to play the guitar (he’s a big James Taylor fan).
