Wealth management firm Wymer Brownlee, the largest independent advisor affiliate of HD Vest Financial Services, has expanded its financial planning and tax planning teams with the hiring of Shawn Bean as tax advisor, Deanna Conway as tax coordinator, and Trey Whitley as financial strategist.
Wymer Brownlee serves high net worth individuals, families and business owners and provides wealth management, financial strategies, tax planning and preparation, business accounting and business consulting services.
We strive to exceed client expectations every day, and now with Shawn, Deanna and Trey on board, we can proactively deliver more value, especially given the opportunities and challenges that come with the new tax laws becoming effective this year,” said Kyle Brownlee, Wymer Brownlee CEO and senior wealth advisor.
