 Harford Financial Group Announces Promotion, New Staff Member and Interns

Bel Air, Md., July 1, 2024 – Harford Financial Group has promoted and hired new staff members and interns. 

Meghan Rafferty Flanders, who joined the firm nearly a year ago as a client relationship specialist, has been promoted to marketing coordinator. Among her responsibilities in this role are coordinating social media, editing and designing the firm’s quarterly newsletter, and organizing client events. 

Austin O’Donnell joined Harford Financial Group as a client service associate on the Certified Financial Planner™ career track. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Towson University and an associate degree in the same major from Harford Community College.

For more than 25 years Harford Financial Group has offered an in-depth summer internship program. 

Two interns have joined the firm this summer–Elie Fraiji and Edward Meredith. Fraiji, a graduate of The John Carroll School, is studying financial economics at UMBC. Meredith received his bachelor’s in Business Administration from Albright College in May and is a graduate of Manchester Valley High School. Harford Financial Group is planning to expand its internship to a year-round program, with the hope that the interns will eventually join the firm’s service team to pursue the advisor career path.

Five current staffers–Melissa Mullan, Certified Financial Planner™ and lead advisor; Bryce Harrison, Certified Financial Planner™ and investment advisor representative; Mallory Evans, registered assistant; Michael Clayton; associate advisor; and John Sieracki IV, registered assistant, started their careers at Harford Financial Group as interns.
