“We have helped our existing clients grow their practices with us year over year and been honored by their trusted referrals.

“Fusion has an outstanding track record and amazing potential as evidenced by their holistic growth,” Engel explained in a statement. “We believe this space is the next growth area, offering a true turnkey, technology-driven asset management platform. I am thrilled and excited to be part of the Fusion team as we continue accelerating forward.”

He currently serves as an operating advisor with Andreessen Horowitz, a senior advisor with Bain Capital and an operating partner with Advent International.
