In 2020 Joseph helped form and organize CMS Institutional, LLC which is an SEC registered Third Party Money management company focused on unique tactical financial strategies. These strategies are utilized with the Capital Management Services clients across the country as well as utilized by thousands of financial professionals in the financial services industry.

He spends his time between Chicago, St. Louis and Los Angeles visiting with various CMS offices as well as meeting with other financial professionals mentoring them on business development.

Although Joseph’s roles and responsibilities have increased over the years, he does work with and still enjoys working with individual client and families.

Cricket Shima Executive Assistant

Many people would be surprised to know that Cricket Shima spent her career as the Captain of a Wisconsin State Men’s Correctional Facility. This dedicated mother to Kristina Gissy and mother in law to Joseph Gissy is the most down to earth, compassionate and friendly person you could meet. Retirement couldn’t keep Cricket away from wanting to help out and serve her community in other ways so she joined up Joseph here at Capital Management Services and has been his direct executive assistant since 2014.
