Steven Crawford, former President, now CEO of The Main Street Group in Glen Allen, passes the presidential reigns down to longtime client and employee, Carol Beth Buchanan.
“I knew it was time for her to be President when my clients began calling me to schedule time with Carol Beth,” says Crawford. “When she joined us 5 years ago, some sort of magic followed her in the door and it has never left.”
After graduating from The College of William and Mary in 1980, she worked for Ukrop’s Super Markets, most recently as Director of Marketing, until 1993. She opened and managed Buchanan Marketing Services until 2000, when she earned her real estate license with Long and Foster. In addition to her undergraduate degree, she holds a Master of Business Administration from University of Richmond.
In her new role, Carol Beth will take on more supervisory responsibilities, allowing Steve Crawford and the firm’s sixteen advisors to focus on research and client interaction. Carol Beth’s oversight will include long-term planning, marketing, compliance and recruiting.
The Main Street Group is an independent financial services firm offering estate planning, investment advisory, and wealth management services. With offices in Richmond, VA; Lexington, VA; Lynchburg, VA; Fairfax, VA; Williamsburg, VA; and Pawleys Island, SC, they have been servicing clients for over 25 years.
