Before establishing Plum Tree Advisors, Jason Pflaum was a financial executive in New York City for 15 years. There he dedicated nearly a decade to Manhattan based merchant bank Thomas Weisel Partners. As a senior analyst and principal, he oversaw its technology industry holdings with a focus on Asia-Pacific electronic supply chains and elements such as semiconductors, distributors, and components. The hundreds of publications he wrote about this field aided institutional investors, particularly significant mutual and hedge funds, in deciding where to place their money. Moreover, in order to better inform his clients, Jason Pflaum visited Asia at least four times a year, leveraging his network there to learn about upcoming market trends. After his 15-year tenure in New York, Mr. Pflaum moved back to his home state of Minnesota to raise his family. Since relocating, Jason Pflaum has also been involved with local nonprofits such as the Mayo Clinic and the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. He is also a staunch supporter of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
