Since Harrison was young, he always had a strong interest in problem-solving, from elementary school brain teasers to the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle. Growing up he saw his father, who has been in financial planning for over 30-years, apply that same problem-solving mentality to the real world with his clients. That real-world application sparked an interest in using personal financial planning to solve the puzzle of financial independence for others.
As a Wealth Manager with Atlanta Financial, he specializes in working with pre-retirees to ensure they are on the path to financial freedom. Harrison enjoys working with young professionals to make educated and informed decisions about their finances early on to help set them up to achieve both their short- and long-term goals. To that end, he has a particular focus on working within the YPFIT™ program to guide young professionals toward financial independence. He is also passionate about providing guidance and mentoring to younger associates on the AFA team.
Harrison graduated from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business in 2013 with a BBA in Finance (Go Dawgs!) and spent the first year of his career as a Financial Advisor with The Piedmont Group. He joined Atlanta Financial as an Associate Advisor in 2014 and quickly worked his way up to his current position as a Wealth Manager. Harrison is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional as well as an Accredited Investment Fiduciary® designee.
Harrison and his wife, Erin, live in Roswell with their daughter Blair and their “fur-child” – a 65-pound Goldendoodle named Knox. In their free time they love to travel and explore new restaurants around town. Their travel shortlist includes Greece, Spain and Iceland, and they are always open to recommendations! Erin and Harrison tend to get along 364 days of the year, with the exception being the annually contentious Georgia-Auburn game.
