How it all started.

Chip Addis began his career in the late-eighties, as a producer for a major life insurance company. Back then, nobody had imagined what it meant to be a fiduciary advisor. But, by the mid-nineties, the industry models started changing dramatically. It was then that Chip realized there was a better way to do business, and he began crafting what the next phase of his career would look like.

As fee-only planning was getting off the ground, Chip saw the opportunity to provide a different model of service for his clients. Chip teamed up with Justin Hill in 2000, giving the new business the wide range of expertise it needed to be successful. With Justin overseeing operations and Chip leading the sales and planning vision, Addis Hill was officially founded.


Chip Addis

Kent R. Addis, Jr. “Chip”

I worked for Pennsylvania Financial Group, an agency of the former Provident  Mutual organization from 1989 until 2000 when Addis Hill was conceived.  During that time I learned the valuable lesson of solving for client needs, I also became uncomfortable with conflicts of interest.  I knew there was a better way to do business and soon found NAPFA which proved to be invaluable in shaping the culture of the new firm, Addis Hill.

At Addis Hill, I aim to consistently listen and use common sense to solve the puzzle that clients bring upon meeting for the first time. I love working with the Addis Hill team because of their high level of integrity and the impact they make on clients’ lives. I also enjoy the authenticity of the company, the use of new technologies, and an overall growth mindset.

When I'm not in the office

I have been happily married to my wife Sue for 32 years. We share three children: Drew (25) who lives in Phoenix, AZ, Kyle (23) a Marine Officer who resides in Quantico, VA, and Jenny (19) a sophomore at Penn State. We have a home on the Chesapeake Bay where my family enjoys spending time on the water with family and friends. I love Penn State football, home renovation projects, collecting art, landscaping, and running around in my two classic cars and motorcycle. I am a small town boy at heart having grown up in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania and graduated from Penn State.

I co-founded Addis Hill with Chip in 2000 and currently serve as head of business operations and compliance for the company. I held roles with MCI, Aetna, and Enterprise after graduating from the University of South Carolina. My experience in sales, business administration, and risk management make me an ideal fit for running the business operations of Addis Hill.

At Addis Hill, I primarily manage the tools necessary for the team to efficiently perform their duties and responsibilities. I enjoy overseeing the technology platforms that enhance the way business runs daily in the digital age. The challenge to keep reinventing business practices is one of my favorite aspects running Addis Hill.
