Christopher J. Barber joined Equitable Advisors on October 1, 1992 in the Syracuse, New York Branch. He has focused his business on working with high-net-worth individuals and business owners to help them with their asset creation and preservation program.

In recognition of his consistently outstanding personal performance and his skills at business building, Chris was quickly promoted to a District Manager in 1995. In just two short years, the Barber District finished in the Top Ten of all districts in the District Leadership Awards standings and reached the number 1 spot in 1998. Based on his strong leadership skills, Chris was promoted to Executive Vice President and tapped to help lead the New York City branch with partners Susan Cooper, ChFC, CLU, CFP and Dror Nir, JD. The New York Metro office, under that leadership team, boasted four President’s Trophy awards in recognition of outstanding management and sales leadership. Chris was also asked to serve as a member of the Old Guard Executive Committee, representing Equitable Advisors Branch Managers across the country.

In 2005 Chris was chosen to lead the Long Island branch, one of the largest branch organizations of Equitable Advisors in the United States with his associate, EVP, Ferdinand Ruplin, ChFC, CLU and SVP, John Surace.  He was tapped to lead the Northeast Division - eleven branches comprising over 40% of the country's total production - as their Regional President in 2015.
