Derek Cockrell

Manager of Wealth

"I am passionate about working with my clients to help them articulate their goals, needs, and wants into clear directives then taking all of that and building a wealth managment strategy to help them not only reach their targets and achieve the lives they want, but to help them preserve their wealth and assets over the length of their lives and, eventually, pass those assets on to those they choose in the most efficient way possible.  Seeing my clients enjoy the fruits of the work we have done together truly fills me with joy!"

My parents taught me the value of hard work and the efficient use of money--saving taxes, maximizing returns on capital, intelligent saving--so I grew up learning about saving and investing, as well as the wisdom behind intelligent financial planning.  They did well in life as a result of their hard work--21 years of Naval service as an officer, many years of teaching and coaching, real estate investing, as well as several years of my father and I working together me as a financial advisors to our clients.  Like my father, I have always striven to provide honest, clear, unbiased advice to my clients, and continue to do so today.  I love what I do and I love the people I am blessed to work with, and my work has allowed me to serve in my community as well as spend a tremendous amount of quality time with my wife and our son--I consider myself a truly blessed man!
