SAN DIEGO, Dec. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Concurrent, a partnership of elite independent advisors affiliated with Raymond James Financial Services, Inc. (RJFS) (member FINRA/SIPC), has continued its fast-tracked model for growth, even as the pandemic continues to impact businesses and individuals throughout America. In recent weeks, Concurrent has worked with seven new advisor teams based in Alaska, Florida, Kentucky, Michigan and Mississippi to transition to their independent network of advisors. With the addition of these newly recruited teams, the total assets under management of the network's advisors has grown by over $1.1 billion.
"We are continually sought out by entrepreneurial-minded advisors who strive for not only independent business ownership, but to also be a steady, reliable source for clients during this relentless year of volatility combined with a global pandemic," said Mike Hlavek, Founding Partner, Concurrent. "As futures change and markets remain unpredictable, our advisors are helping many Americans navigate through waves of uncertainty and unprecedented high emotions."
In recent weeks, Concurrent picked up two teams in the state of Alaska. In Fairbanks, Head Retirement & Wealth Strategies comprised of advisors, Roark "Alan" Head, nearly a 40-year financial services veteran, and Austin Head, along with Service Associate, Deborah Combs joined the Concurrent network. The team was previously with Wedbush Securities and manages nearly $300 million in assets under management.
"Partnering with Concurrent allows us to become business owners rather than employees and puts us on the same side of the desk as our clients," explained Alan Head, Founder & Managing Director, Head Retirement & Wealth Services. "We have the benefit of independence backed up with all the resources Raymond James has to offer. We're excited to join the Concurrent family and look forward to growing our business together."
Also in Fairbanks, Alaska and formerly with Wedbush Securities, Krista Stamper of Stamper Wealth and Retirement Group, joined Concurrent, bringing in nearly $253 million in assets under management.
Tracy Thacker, head of Thacker Wealth and Retirement and his team comprised of Tammy Duncan, Penney Brooks, and Debra Thacker have chosen the path to independence by partnering with the Concurrent network. Located in Owensboro, Kentucky, Thacker and his team hold $259 million in assets under management and were formerly with Edward Jones.
"The opportunity to partner with Concurrent is a tremendous opportunity for my practice that will greatly benefit my clients," said Tracy Thacker, Head of Thacker Wealth and Retirement. "With access to the Raymond James platform, I'll have access to a much broader spectrum of resources that will allow my team to offer more holistic services and spend more time focused on my clients.

This new team brings over $87 million in assets under management to this Benton, Kentucky based practice.
