Complex Manager

The Granite Group is led by manager Edward Sudzina, who is committed to providing the right opportunities to help advisors succeed and grow. He works diligently to cultivate a client-first culture that values professionalism, integrity, freedom – and fun.

A 1991 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and former infantry officer in the U.S. Army, Ed began his career in the financial services industry as a financial advisor with Prudential Securities in Birmingham, Michigan. After training in Prudential's Branch Manager Leadership Program in New York City in 2000, Ed chose to return to Michigan to lead the Auburn Hills branch for Raymond James & Associates, where he was pleased to discover a corporate culture that puts clients first while simultaneously encouraging advisors to independently grow their businesses.

Since he was promoted to complex manager in 2005, Ed has worked to create an environment where advisors feel like they’re finally home. He also looks to share the Raymond James story with other high-quality financial advisors contemplating a real change. Ed attended the Securities Industry Institute at The Wharton School in Philadelphia and received his MBA from The Broad School of Management at Michigan State University.

*The On Wall Street branch manager recognition is based on their marketing strategy, ability to recruit, develop, retain and reward talented advisors and their dedication to providing superior client service among other factors. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
