Prior to joining RCS, Mr. Roth served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Advisor Group, one of the largest networks of independent broker dealers in the United States.  Advisor Group consists of wholly-owned subsidiaries FSC Securities Corporation, Royal Alliance Associates, Sagepoint Financial, Inc. and Woodbury Financial Services.  Mr. Roth joined that organization in 2006 as President and CEO of Royal Alliance.

Commenting on the appointment, Michael Weil noted, "As our business grows, we will continue to build our management team with individuals who demonstrate unique industry perspectives, unparalleled levels of talent, strong relevant leadership experience, a proven ability to execute and a shared vision to improve our industry.  Larry's experience and his obvious passion and commitment to driving results made him a natural choice to lead RCS.  As Chairman, I will work closely with Larry on our overall business strategy and will serve as a continuing resource for him as he assumes day-to-day operating and leadership responsibilities for RCS." 

Nicholas S. Schorsch, RCAP's Executive Chairman observed, "Over his 30 years in the financial services industry, Larry has brought strong leadership and a stalwart focus on driving demonstrable growth and innovation to the organizations he has led.  We are excited that Larry has chosen to join RCS.  His experience and strategic vision will contribute meaningfully to RCS' ability to grow its business and expand its role as the preeminent open architecture distribution platform for non-traded publicly registered securities."

William M. Kahane, CEO of RCAP added, "We are confident that Larry's valuable insight and experience at the helm of a number of leading independent broker dealers will translate well to our focus on expanding our business model to deliver an even more comprehensive suite of alternative investment products and services to the financial services industry.  His broad and deep understanding of the independent broker dealer community will allow us to better serve the 100,000 financial advisors affiliated with our 300 selling group members." 

"I am thrilled to join RCS -- a company committed to best practices and dedicated to the alignment of management and investor interests," stated Mr. Roth.  "I have watched RCS grow dramatically over the past five years to offer an increasing number of sector-specific offerings designed to deliver demonstrable results for investors. RCS has built a well-respected distribution platform, and I am extremely motivated to join a company that shares my commitment to innovation, growth and excellence."
