Linda K. Pietroburgo, MBA, CFP®
Moneta Group Principal Linda Pietroburgo joined the firm in 2001. With an established, thriving practice, she spends her days advising 100 clients and their families on financial matters. Her ultimate goal is to relieve her clients of thinking and worrying about their finances on a day-to-day basis. “Within the confines of a trusted relationship, we strive to handle all of the everyday oversight and administration of a family’s finances so they’re free to enjoy all life has to offer them,” she says.
To do so, she and her team work to completely and thoroughly understand each client’s needs and objectives. “My clients’ needs are the priority, and our communication centers on helping them deal effectively with the opportunities and financial choices that having money entails,” she explains. A keen interest of hers and her clients is Socially Responsible Investing, and she is dedicated to finding sound and appropriate vehicles for her clients in the belief that good corporate citizenship and strong financial performance are related. “It’s one way my clients and I have of advocating for sustainable growth.”
Prior to joining Moneta Group, Pietroburgo worked in financial leadership positions for Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. She also taught finance courses at Webster University and University of Missouri-St. Louis and spent time working with international finance and treasury functions at Boeing. Those experiences—and her family history—made her a passionate advocate for education. “My mother received an associate degree from Florissant Valley that allowed her to return to work after raising me and my sister,” she says. “My sister was a student on the same campus, and my husband, Greg, took several math classes at Meramec. Our son took advantage of a summer class to supplement his college coursework.”
Pietroburgo earned her BSBA in finance from the University of Missouri – St. Louis in 1984. In 1991, she graduated magna cum laude with her MBA from University of Missouri – St. Louis. “Education isn’t simply important in building a future,” she says. “It’s liberating. Education opens you to new ideas, new people and new ways of thinking and seeing your community, your country and the world. In this global economy, that is something everyone can benefit from. I know from personal experience how valuable the St. Louis Community College campuses are to students of every age, and how vital they are to the ultimate growth and success of the entire region.”
Pietroburgo serves on the Board of the St. Louis Forum and is a member of the Safe Connection’s Finance Committee, the Financial Planning Association and previously, Whitfield School Parent Council.
Pietroburgo is an avid snow skier and fitness junkie. Her favorite sport is skiing but since she lives in St. Louis instead of Vail – she also enjoys swimming, running and biking. She and her husband Greg have two children.
