I bring over 30 years of wealth management experience to every client relationship. During these 30 years, I have led clients through plenty of market ups and downs, and my focus has remained on retirement planning, estate investment planning, and risk management. While I manage a diverse client base, senior executives in public companies and business owners are among my strongest relationships. By developing long-term relationships with my clients and their families – and working with their other trusted professionals - I am part of a coordinated effort to help my clients achieve their goals.
I have built my practice around a vision of helping affluent investors effectively pursue their financial goals through a fully implemented investment plan. My service model includes timely scheduled contacts providing the communication foundation that is vital to any professional relationship.
Prior to joining Wells Fargo Advisors, I worked for a number of distinguished firms, including UBS, Smith Barney, Legg Mason Wood Walker, Prudential Securities, and Shearson Lehman Hutton. I hold the Series 7, 8, 9,10, 63 and 65 securities registrations, and I am also licensed for life, accident and health insurance. Additionally, I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, a Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA®), and a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA™)* – all of which are certifications I obtained through diligent educational coursework. These certifications form the base of my investment planning strategies and investment management platforms. In 2019, I was recognized with the Platinum Council honor. The Platinum Council (previously known as Premier Advisor) distinction is held by a select group of Financial Advisors within Wells Fargo Advisors as measured by completion of educational components, business production based on the past year, and professionalism. Additional criteria, best practices and team structure, may also be used to determine recipients.
I received an MBA in Finance from Xavier University and a BBA in Marketing from Eastern Kentucky University. I am active with a number of professional associations, including the Association of Professional Investment Consultants (APICS) and the Investments and Wealth Institute (formerly IMCA). I also sit on the board of directors for several condo associations, and I am active in my church.
“My goal is to provide custom tailored strategies that work in your complex financial life while making things simpler for you daily.”
I live with my wife, Leigh, in Brentwood, TN, and we have three children and two Goldendoodle dogs.
