Soon thereafter, he became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, one of the early adopters of this highly-regarded industry standard. Seeking to build a superior client service model, he founded Davidson Wealth Management of Wells Fargo Advisors in 1991 and he earned the Certified Investment Management Analyst's designation from the Investment Management Consultants Association in 1994. Chris has remained steadfast and client-focused through multiple industry mergers and financial crises. He has chosen to maintain his industry registrations with the firm that first gave him the opportunity to serve and help build, manage, preserve and transition his clients' wealth.
