Francine began her career in the financial services industry in 1993 with Pershing, LLC. She served as a Certified Sales Representative for Retirement Plans for over two years, and was primary liaison for Pershing’s top clients. During her time there, Francine was rewarded for her strong work by being promoted to supervisor over one of two customer service teams.
