John Spagnola brings nearly 30 years of investment experience to PFM Advisors, a division of PFM Asset Management LLC that was built on the premise of providing independent and objective advice to PFM’s institutional clients. His duties include serving on the investment committee, overseeing marketing and client service and consulting with public, hospital, endowment, and Taft-Hartley Fund clients who use the investment consulting and discretionary management services of PFM Advisors.

Over a 10-year period, assets under advisement grew to over $3.5 billion. In 2003, Spagnola-Cosack, Inc. was acquired by PFM.
