Hunt Valley-based Hardesty Capital Management has rebranded and officially changed their company name to Tufton Capital Management effective immediately.

The firm previously known as Hardesty was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1995 by Jim Hardesty and Randy McMenamin. The namesake of the company, Jim Hardesty, retired from the firm in April of 2015 and passed away the following month. In explaining the name change, Chad Meyer, President of the firm remarked “The Hardesty name will always connote trust, financial acumen and a deep devotion to our clients. We feel strongly, however, that the contributions of all of our employees, and not just those of our co-founder, be reflected in our corporate name. While Jim Hardesty’s legacy and invaluable contribution to our organization will live on, we believe that a new name will best represent our entire firm as we move forward.”

The Tufton Capital Management name was selected after a thorough evaluative review and was ultimately voted on unanimously by the entire firm. The offices of Tufton Capital, a 13 person firm, overlook the beautiful Tufton Valley of northern Baltimore County. The company will celebrate their 21st anniversary this year.
