Careers in Wealth Management: A Talk with Chris W. Brown

October 5, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

REGISTRATION REQUIRED – Sign up via the Honors Network

Are you interested in learning more about careers in wealth management? Join us for a dinner talk by Christopher W. Brown, a distinguished alumnus of UGA. He is excited to have the chance to talk with students about career options within wealth management, a career path he has found very fulfilling.

Chris is the founder of Brown Miller Wealth Management, which had been a part of Wells Fargo Advisors until he and his business partner, David Miller, established it as a Registered Investment Advisory firm in 2020. The motivation for the move was the desire to deliver an exceptional fiduciary experience for clients. With over 26 years of experience as a financial advisor, Chris focuses on the complex needs unique to high net worth clients, businesses, endowments and foundations.

Chris grew up in a family dedicated to professional investment management and his father was a major influence on his decision to become a financial advisor. From a young age, he witnessed first-hand how the ownership of high-quality businesses, the power of compound interest, and a well-designed financial plan can profoundly transform and improve people’s lives: educating children and grandchildren, providing a retirement with dignity and peace of mind, fueling charity and philanthropy, and protecting loved ones from the uncertainties of life. It’s Chris’s firm belief in the importance and positive impact of his work that drives his desire to serve and deliver meaningful results for his clients.

Chris holds a degree in business administration with honors from the University of Georgia. He completed the CIMA(r) designation at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and completed the requirements to become a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER(tm) professional (CFP(r)) through the College for Financial Planning. His volunteer and leadership activities include serving as a Trustee of the University of Georgia Foundation and as a board member of the University’s Terry College of Business Alumni Board.

The lecture will be held on Wednesday, October 5 from 5:00-6:15pm in 102 Moore Hall. Please make sure to arrive on time. Attendance is limited to the first 25 students who RSVP. Dinner (lasagna and salad) and dessert will be served.
