Birmingham, AL – October 28, 2019 – RFG Advisory is excited to announce that Brianne Smith has joined its growing network of Independent Financial Advisors. Based in Montgomery, Alabama, Brianne opens RFG Advisory’s first office in our state’s capitol city.

She spent 19 years as a CPA at Warren Averett working with high-net worth clients and the last 5 years serving as an accounting professor at Huntingdon College. Brianne joins RFG Advisory as a Financial Advisor to begin the chapter she’s been preparing for her entire career. “I’ve always been motivated to help people get from where they are to where they want to be,” Brianne continues, “For my clients I will be their financial quarterback, personal CFO, strategic confidant and accountability partner.”
Recognized for teaching excellence at Huntingdon College and financial planning excellence by American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Brianne brings a unique perspective to serving her clients. Combining an in-depth focus on education and coaching with comprehensive wealth management, financial planning and traditional CPA services, Brianne represents the future of our industry. “I couldn’t be more excited to partner with RFG”, Brianne says, “They have built a unique culture that supports and encourages entrepreneurship and enables Advisors to work with high-net worth individuals and business owners to collaboratively work toward solving everything from basic financial planning to sophisticated estate planning and business succession strategies.”
