George Smith Partners continues its growth and expansion with the addition of Allison Weiss as vice president/director of platform development and Dana Light as vice president of research/marketing. This follows the company’s promotion of Principals Shahin Yazdi and Jonathan Lee to co-managing directors earlier this year.

“These two new appointments reflect our focus on growing our platform in the markets we serve, as well as our objective to serve more clients across a broader geography throughout the country,” said Lee in prepared remarks.
