Nell Schiffer and PJ McDaniel Elevated to Partner Level

Hill Investment Group is proud to announce that PJ McDaniel and Nell Schiffer will join Matt Hall and John Reagan as Partners.

“It’s a huge honor to be invited into the partnership group at Hill Investment Group,” says Nell. “Since the day I interviewed, it’s been my dream to help shape the Island of Idealism for our clients and team. This next chapter will be a great one.”

Nell’s rare combination of technical ability and interpersonal instincts makes her an indispensable member of the team. As HIG’s first COO, Nell has played a pivotal role in building on the organic magic that used to live in Matt and Rick’s heads. Today, the firm runs on a reliable set of systems, second nature to Nell and now to HIG.

As HIG’s Head of Business Development, PJ has been instrumental in building relationships with successful families who want to Take the Long View. His experience balancing growth with high-touch service puts him in an ideal position to help lead HIG into the future.

“My time at HIG has given me a perspective that few people are fortunate enough to have, and I’m ready to pay it forward,” says PJ. “We’ve always had big visions, and now we have the team in place to make it all happen.”

“Hill Investment Group is special because of our people,” says Matt Hall. “Nell and PJ are truly exceptional and have earned their way to the ownership and leadership table. I sincerely believe these two are among the best in our industry.”

2 Minute Video: HIG and Focus In Our Own Words

Want to hear what we really think about our partnership with Focus? Get it here from Nell, Matt, Katie, PJ, John, and me in just over two minutes. Our new video captures in our own words what this next chapter means for our clients and team.



This month we celebrated the work anniversaries of Buddy Reisinger (12 years) and Katie Ackerman (6 years).

Buddy’s decade-plus with HIG makes him a truly committed member of the team. He’s known not just for his tenure at the firm but also for his fun-loving personality and 24/7 access.  The “Bud Man” is an original, and we love him.

Katie is the first voice our clients hear on the phone and is as thoughtful in serving our team as she is with our clients. Her sense of humor, hospitality, and witty teasing are some of the essential ingredients that make HIG feel like “Cheers.”

We appreciate all their hard work and dedication!
