Acumen’s Reese Veltenaar Named in InvestmentNews’ 2017 40 Under 40

CHATTANOOGA, TN  June 19, 2017 – Acumen Wealth Advisors, LLC®, is pleased to announce Reese Veltenaar, Co-Founder and Partner, has been named one of InvestmentNews’ 2017 40 Under 40.  Reese is the only advisor selected in East Tennessee; only two were selected from the State of Tennessee.  He is recognized for his accomplishments, contributions, leadership, and promise in the financial planning industry.  Acumen Wealth Advisors has experienced rapid growth in assets under management (AUM), especially in the last three years by focusing on fiduciary client investment management.

“We set out to create an unparalleled client experience with a passionate team truly caring about making an impact in people’s lives,” said Reese Veltenaar.  “Our expansion is a reflection of our team’s relentless pursuit to embody a culture that realizes the success of our organization is derived from the success of our clients.  I am honored to accept this recognition on behalf of my dedicated team at Acumen.”

Reese Veltenaar is featured along with the other 40 Under 40 notables in the June 19 issue of InvestmentNews. 

“Given the passion, dedication and innovative spirit that are hallmarks of the U.S. financial advice industry, it’s not surprising we received more than 800 nominations when we put out our call for this year’s class of 40 Under 40s,” said Frederick P. Gabriel Jr., editor of InvestmentNews.  “Whittling those nominations down to just 40 honorees was tough.  But, after reading our honorees’ stories, I have no doubt that InvestmentNews’ readers will feel as inspired and hopeful of the future of the industry as we do.”

Reese co-founded Acumen Wealth Advisors when he realized the continuing need for innovative and transparent client-centric asset management integrated with financial planning.  He provides strategic leadership, planning, and broad executive management to the firm’s objectives.  Within five years, Reese has integrated an experienced, dynamic, ten-person team to exceed client expectations, led the company in its growth, and managed the transition to RIA (Registered Investment Adviser) while always putting clients’ interests first.  He holds a Bachelor of Science in Finance from the University of Florida, a Master of Science in Accounting from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®).
