Ashley R. Agnew, Associate Director of Relationship Development
Ashley is drawn to the finance industry because of its dynamicity, and when she graduated with her bachelor’s degree in marketing and communications writing during the heart of the recession in 2008, she wanted to understand more about the industry that had the power to slow the world. Prior to working at Centerpoint, she held various client facing roles at a management level, and she was eager to find a position where she could apply her relationship management and business development skills with the knowledge gained through her higher education surrounding financial services. After meeting the Centerpoint team through an internship during her MBA program, it was clear that the philosophy, work ethic, and vision at Centerpoint Advisors was a great fit for her desire to create valued relationships in investment management.
Ashley began her academic career at Newbury College in Brookline, MA as the captain of the college’s women’s volleyball team. After an injury and change of major, she finished her undergraduate work at the University of Massachusetts with a B.S. in Business Administration, majoring in marketing with a minor in communications writing. Ashley held many client facing marketing and managerial roles post-graduation, and decided to continue her education in 2013 by pursuing a graduate degree. In 2015, she graduated with her Master’s of Business Administration in Global Finance with honors from Bryant University and began working with Centerpoint during the later half of her graduate program.

Outside the Office
During her downtime Ashley loves spending time with her family taking drives to new beaches, parks, and trails where her children, Kadian and Chloe can explore. She especially enjoys discovering pet-friendly areas where she can bring along her mastiff mutt Chewbacca. She and her husband, Derek, also enjoy golfing, watching Boston sports teams, and planning their annual family summer getaway when they try to visit a unique destination every year (suggestions welcomed!). Ashley also spends as much time as she can playing and coaching volleyball, both indoors and out.
