Bruce Ledoux is an entrepreneur and Financial Wealth Advisor to his clients. Bruce is recognized for his ability to draw on his business acumen and financial and estate planning knowledge to advise clients on both their business and personal wealth management issues. Business development is his strong suit. His commitment to the firm’s growth includes: prospecting new business opportunities, keeping current with New England business trends and meeting CEOs in and around New England have contributed to the firms increased assets.
Undergraduate studies found him spending his junior year abroad as a home stay student in Tokyo, Japan. Those studies led to co-op at a Japanese company in Sydney, Australia and ultimately a degree in International Marketing with a minor in Japanese language. Bruce loves challenges of all kinds, especially his passion for amateur sports car racing which began in 1999.
The same entrepreneurial spirit and skill he brings to his business, he also brings to his sports car racing. He is a certified high performance driving instructor for BMW and Track Chair for Empire Region of the Ferrari Club of America. He began endurance racing in 2003 with a runner up out of a 200+ competitor field for the Sports Car Club of America’s North Atlantic Road Racing Championship(2005). Other podiums include a 2nd in class at the Summit Point 12hr (2005), a 1st overall in the Pocono 150 (2006), a 1st in class at the Watkins Glen 3hr and a 1st in class at the VIR 13hr (2007). The past two years have delivered Bruce two Rolex24hr at Daytona entries finishing in 18th & 19th place with his gentlemen racer teams.
The car interest continues off track as well. In 2004, as President of the MA Chapter of Ferrari Club of America, he chaired the Museum of Transportation’s largest annual fund raising effort, Tutto Italiano-the largest Italian car show in New England with 200 cars attending. In 2005, he was appointed Trustee for the Museum of Transportation. In 2006, Bruce launched 6th Gear establishing himself as an elite auto enthusiast and expert, offering training and promoting ride and drive events in the New England area. In 2009, Bruce launched Guardian Angel Motorsports that combines pro-racing with raising money for charity. The first year effort of the team allowed them to raise over $104,000 for three children’s charities.
Clearly, Bruce’s unique approach to work and play integrates his passion, commitment and skill within both areas. Blending his financial experience and his knowledge in sports car racing has created a unique and loyal customer base, especially with many high net worth individuals who, like him, are Ferrari owners. He builds strong relationships and places high value on establishing connections with his clients, colleagues and friends.
Bruce and his wife Linda and three children, Colin, Emily and Ryan, reside in Southborough, Massachusetts and spend the summers on Nantucket.
