I would like to use my first personal note as an opportunity to formally introduce myself; Who am I? What am I doing here? And most importantly, what on earth was it like growing up with John as my Father?
I’ll start with the basics. I am Rob Napolitano, the newest member of Napier Financial. I have known and worked with most of our team for over a decade. I am the Managing Partner of GenWel Capital, a new division of Napier Financial that aims to bring quality investment opportunities in real estate and private equity to our clients.
My wife Jenna and I live in Norwell and we have three rambunctious and loving children. We both grew up in town and feel grateful to be raising our kids so closely surrounded by their grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles. Ellie is our confident four-and-a-half-year-old leader. She loves being a big sister to both of her younger brothers, creating art projects, eating cupcakes, and dancing around the kitchen! Jack joined us in the thick of COVID, arriving in late April of 2020. He’s our fearless little wild man, who can run faster than some professional track stars and has been zooming on his bike since he was 18 months old. Jack marches to the beat of his own drum and has an eye for anything with wheels or a tailpipe (the apple didn’t fall far from the tree there). Grayson, “the body” as John calls him, rounds out our troop. He is seven months old and is bigger than most kids twice his age. Gray is a sweet little guy who thrives on the chaos that his older siblings provide. He fits in perfectly. Together we enjoy boating in Scituate, visiting Lake Winnipesaukee and Florida, beach days and bike rides. In the event that I have time to myself I enjoy working on my race truck, a hobby I’ve been passionate about since I was a kid.
I have admired my father’s drive and commitment to his practice for a long time. As the oldest of four children, I am the only one of my siblings to follow in his footsteps. Although we ended up going in different directions professionally, my father instilled elements of his business sense and work ethic in all of us. Growing up our family dynamic was a lot of fun. My Brother, Tom, and I were only 16 months apart and an inseparable team. My sisters Laura and Julia shared a similar experience. I remember splitting up as a young family when we would go on adventures – the boys went with dad and the girls went with mom. The memories of our trio skiing black diamonds at Attitash as eight and nine-year-olds will never fade. Today I am proud to be partners with my father at Napier Financial and look forward to working with you.
