The 2014 Four Under Forty Award recipients are:
At age 15, life took a tragic turn for Deanna Brown and her family. Affluent and living in the Northeast, Brown’s father suffered a serious accident that left him unable to work for a year, and his wife in unstable health. With no disability income insurance, the family business closed. While living on welfare and food stamps, the family of five relocated to Jacksonville, Fla., where they eventually rebuilt their lives. Such life lessons instilled in Brown a passion to help others prepare for life’s unexpected occurrences with sound financial planning. At age 37, Brown owns her own business with $269 million in assets under management. Her company, Ullmann Financial Group, was named the “Premier Advisor” in Northeast Florida by Jacksonville Magazine’s 904 for the second year in a row.
Profiles of all Four Under 40 winners appear in September/October 2014 issue of Advisor Today.
