The family-owned and operated firm was established on Wall Street in 1933 and has since grown to more than 400 employees operating in ten locations across the country and serving clients across the globe. The news comes as the company prepares for its 80th anniversary next year.
“Our company was founded on the principle of putting our clients first,” said James W. Crystal, chairman and chief executive officer of Crystal & Company whose father founded the firm. “I am proud that, as we have grown, we have sustained that principle through three generations of family management. Our new branding reflects this.”
“Earlier this year we conducted a study, speaking with our clients, partners and colleagues. What set us apart for them was our independence, that we’re beholden to no one but our clients,” said Jamie Crystal, who serves on the firm’s executive committee, along with his two brothers, Sandy Crystal and Jonathan Crystal, and executive vice presidents Ed Kiessling and John C. Smith.
This feedback became the foundation for the company’s new themeline, “The integrity of independence.”
“Our colleagues are united by their Independence and fierce commitment to serving our clients, which is why our new identity very much emphasizes the talents of our professionals,” said Sandy Crystal, executive vice president of Crystal & Company.
