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”

Chip worked for Pennsylvania Financial Group, an agency of the former Provident  Mutual organization from 1989 until 2000 when Addis Hill was conceived.  While he learned the valuable lesson of solving for client needs, he also became uncomfortable with conflicts of interest.  He 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.

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

Chip has been happily married to his wife Sue for 30 years. They share three children: Drew (24), Kyle (22), and Jenny (18). They have a home on the Chesapeake Bay where they enjoy spending time on the water. Chip loves Penn State football, home renovation, collecting art, landscaping, and maintaining his 1960’s rides. Chip is a small town boy at heart having grown up in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania and graduating from Penn State.
