Founder & Principal Advisor


Will Brennan is the Founder and Principal Advisor of Park Hill Financial Planning & Investment Management.

Throughout his career, Will has successfully guided countless individuals and families through various life stages, from young professionals seeking to build wealth to retirees aiming to preserve their livelihoods and enjoy a comfortable encore. He enjoys being able to live vicariously through his clients’ experiences and, to that end, he internalizes and shares heavily in his clients’ defeats and losses but loves nothing more than being able celebrate his clients’ hard-earned triumphs and victories.
