OUR TEAM

 
 

At Via Global, our people are passionate, determined, and curious problem solvers.  We have decades of experience working for firms and organizations including Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Athena Capital Advisors, Lake Street Advisors, the Dartmouth College Investment Office, and Hale and Dorr Wealth Advisors.

Kimberly Clouse, 

Founder and CEO

Kimberly brings nearly two decades of financial services expertise to her clients. A seasoned financial services executive, Kimberly held the role of Chief Executive Officer of Hale and Dorr Wealth Advisors, where she led the turnaround of the firm. She later served as Managing Director of Athena Capital Advisors, a firm with the largest per-private client average assets under management in the country at the time. Kimberly has worked for J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs, and U.S. Trust.  

 

Growing up in a household where money was a topic to be avoided and feared, Kimberly founded Via Global in 2013 because she understands just how complicated - and often contradictory - investment advice has become.

 

 Kimberly is an Independent Director of Market Street Trust Company, a family office and private trust company that has been serving the Houghton family for more than a century. She also serves on the Board of Directors of Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation.

 

Kimberly earned her MBA from Harvard Business School and graduated summa cum laude from Rice University, where she was salutatorian.

Alan began his career at Dartmouth College Investments Office, leading the team’s efforts to analyze the endowment’s 50-year portfolio of private equity, private real estate, and commodities. He later served at Athena Capital Advisors, where he and Kimberly worked closely together on a myriad of client issues, and he and his team created a proprietary performance reporting platform, with a focus on private equity and private real estate.

Alan earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music at the University of Pittsburgh.

Via Global Gives

As a gesture of our gratitude, we created Via Global Gives, a vehicle through which we contribute a portion of our profits to philanthropic causes that make a real difference in the lives of families in New England and beyond.  We actively participate in our local communities and continually evaluate giving opportunities that align with our firm and personal values.

 

Past Via Global Gives charitable recipients have included Prosperity Now, National Public Radio (“NPR”), the GlobeDocs Film Festival, the Coolidge Corner Theater, and Girls Who Invest.​

Prosperity Now ensures that families can create a clear path to financial stability, wealth and prosperity.​

NPR’s mission is to create a more informed public – one challenged and invigorated by a deeper understanding and appreciation of events, ideas and cultures.

The annual GlobeDocs Film Festival is designed to engage, promote, and celebrate film and production talent and is specifically curated to turn screenings into an opportunity for the community to come together and have an open dialogue. 

The Coolidge Corner Theatre is an independent, nonprofit cinema and cultural institution that has been offering greater Boston audiences contemporary independent film, repertory, and educational programming since 1933. 

​GWI is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the number of women in portfolio management and executive leadership in the asset management industry.
