In 2023 Justin was named to the 2023 edition of the AdvisorHub’s list of 100 Solo Advisors to Watch†. Solo Advisors provide high quality advice and highly personalized attention to their clients with the help of their staff and firms. Additionally, this year Justin completed additional education and certifications, including becoming a Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA) through the Exit Planning Institute. This designation symbolizes Justin's ability to work with business owners, growth advisors, and CPA's on analyzing business valuations for growth or options for business owners to sell or monetize their businesses. In his current practice, Justin works closely with business owners and this knowledge will allow him to provide a higher level of expertise during this crucial time for a business owner or partner.

Furthermore, this year Justin was selected to become a member of the Institute of Investment Management Consulting (IIMC)** at Raymond James. The Institute was developed to help financial advisors drive success in their consulting practices through educational programs, ongoing communications forums and networking with other financial advisors. The IIMC curriculum provides these advisors with advanced knowledge and concepts commensurate with many high-level institutional money management consultants. IIMC members are selected based on their demonstrated commitment to pursuing a consulting approach in managing and growing their practices.

Most recently, Justin passed the final exam by the National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA) to obtain the Non-Qualified Plan Advisor Designation (NQPA). This certification will allow him to better serve his corporate and business owner clients with their retirement and tax planning. He also earned the NAPA (k)RS™ credential. 401(k) Rollover Specialist (k)RS™ plan advisors demonstrate the expertise required to comply with new regulations for recommending rollovers to individual retirement accounts (IRAs), from one plan to another plan, and from one IRA to another IRA.
