Waxman, Aaron

San Francisco Business Times has named Aaron Waxman ’03 one of its 2017 40 under 40 award winners. Part of the leadership team for wealth management firm B|O|S, Waxman has helped shape the vision for a company considered a top RIA and financial advisor by Forbes and Financial Times. He also serves on the board for nonprofits Headlands Center for the Arts and Stern Grove Festival Association. Outside of work, he enjoys reading, drawing, and pillow fighting with his two children—and walking his dog, Mr. Wilson. Stroll down memory lane long enough, and you’ll learn he was once an accomplished classical pianist.
