Wayne A. Russo, CFP®

Founder & Financial Advisor

For over 40 years, Wayne, the founder of Pittsburgh Financial, has helped clients pursue a robust financial lifestyle. His sons David and Steven have joined him in that pursuit. With a degree in social work, Wayne approaches client relationships differently than industry norms. His clients are a priority to him, and they are part of his family.  

Wayne has volunteered for many organizations over the past 40 years. He was involved in the annual PARC Walk-A-Thon to raise money for physically and mentally disabled children. He was also one of the founding and charter members of the Greentree Rotary Club. He helped establish and chair their annual golf outing, of which 100% of the proceeds went to the Allegheny County Association for Mentally Challenged Citizens and the Children’s Rehabilitation Center. Wayne is very active in his church, and his current efforts include serving as a board member for the Watchful Shephard - a child abuse prevention organization.  

Wayne enjoys golfing and the Pittsburgh sports scene, but he derives his greatest pleasure from his family. He and his wife Kathy have three sons and three very special grandchildren.
