Meet The Team

Williams Keen Butcher, of Counsel

Keen has two decades of experience in the Financial Securities industry. This experience was earned in institutional sales at JMP Securities and Tudor Pickering, in M & A at Robertson Stephens, in corporate finance at Banc of America Securities, and in private equity fund of funds management at CMS Companies.

The last decade has been spent directly serving institutional investors. He earned his CFA designation in 1997, an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1995, and an A.B. from Princeton University in 1988. Keen also holds his CLU, CHFC, and FINRA 7, 63, 66, 79, 86, 87 and 4.

Keen has been happily to married to Genevieve Hutcheson Butcher for 25 years and they are proud parents of four children. Most of their non-work hours are “volunteering” as “private chauffeurs” to their children; taking their children to and from athletic, academic and social activities. Occasionally, they “volunteer” for “logistics support”; towing sailboats to and from regattas, unloading, rigging and reloading said boats; and delivering occasional forgotten academic, artistic, and athletic supplies to school mid-day.

You may also find Keen and Genevieve providing “guidance counseling”: making sure the homework process stays on target and providing ongoing room organization support.
