Mark V. Dyer

Managing Director - Financial Advisor, Senior Consulting Group


I am a Baltimore native and graduate of both the Gilman School and the University of Maryland. After earning my BA in 1975, I joined Baker Watts and Company and teamed with Julius Westheimer to form the Westheimer Group in 1980 which evolved into a partnership called The Dyer Kroneberger Group. With that team, assets under management exceeded one billion dollars including personal accounts, trusts, retirement accounts, corporate 401k plans and insurance. Now as a solo advisor, I frequently coordinate investment strategies with input from clients, their attorneys and accountants.

I am generous with my time and resources to various charitable organizations. I spent over ten years on the board of the Baltimore Visiting Nurse Association and eventually became President of the Board of Directors. I also spent time as a Trustee on the Board of Bon Secours Health Systems. Most recently, I spent over 15 years as a Trustee on the Board of Abilities Network and its' sister organization The Epilepsy Foundation of the Chesapeake Region where I also served as president. My family gives to many charitable foundations and has been a member of United Way’s Tocqueville Society for over ten years.

I live in Cockeysville with my wife, Janet. We have been married for over twenty five years and have two grown children.
