Madison is pleased to announce that Brad Meeks, CFA and senior portfolio manager, has been named to the Cincinnati Business Courier’s Forty under 40 Class of 2019.  “This honor is well deserved given Brad’s numerous contributions and successes, both personally and professionally“, says Ed Kuresman, Madison’s chief investment officer.
