Tradition Wealth Management is heading into the second half of 2018 as busy as ever. Since the last newsletter in January, we’ve added four new members to our team, bringing us to 20 employees. Welcome Office Manager – Kelly Huegel, Financial Advisor – Eric Peyton, and Data Integration Specialists – Alex Wynne and Cory Carlson. We currently have branch offices in Edina, St. Paul and Woodbury and are looking to expand to more locations later this year. The sports management division, led by former professional hockey player, Jake Taylor, was launched earlier this year to help navigate the complexities of life as a professional athlete. We’re excited about the traction we’ve made with this new division and look forward to its continued growth.
