After significant early growth in the business, Bryan embarked in 2005 to build a team that could better serve his clients. He says, “When we started the team it was a completely unique idea in our area and a rather new concept in the industry. My vision was always to create a team. I believed having a strong team with different talents and skills would add tremendous value to our clients.”
It only made sense to invite Troy Stovern to join the firm. Bryan and Troy attended Joplin High School together, both graduated from Missouri Southern State University with degrees in economics/finance, and both worked for the United States Treasury Department as National Bank Examiners. After leaving the Treasury Department, Troy had a successful career in pharmaceutical sales both in St. Louis and Joplin, MO. He joined the team in 2005. “Troy immediately came to mind. His integrity, values, background in the financial industry, and – most importantly – my deep respect for how he treats others, make him a perfect fit for our team and our clients.”
Cari Ray and Maegan Linden complement the team at Vowels & Stovern Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors. Cari, Registered Client Associate, serves as the Chief Operations Officer for the team. She came to Wells Fargo Advisors in 2017 after 14 years as Assistant Branch Manager at Southwest Missouri Bank. Maegan joined the firm in 2009 and the team in 2013. Maegan Linden, Client Associate, is the Director of Client Experience and also handles communications and marketing.
“Cari is caring and enthusiastic about doing the right thing for everyone she meets. Maegan's attitude and abilities make her a tremendous asset to the team,” says Bryan.
