ATLANTA, May 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Financial Group (IFG) has completed milestone expansion of their leadership team, support services, and office space as of April 2018. Since June 2017, IFG has focused on cultivating talent and improving processes and procedures to serve their advisor members more effectively.
"Our vision for the future involves helping advisors reach their full potential," says Co-CEO Land Bridgers. "The decision to focus on internal growth lines up with our goal to be the premier destination for truly independent financial planners, where our members receive the personalized coaching and support services they need to be successful. We decided the best way to invest in our advisors was to make progress from the inside out."
IFG extended their Headquarters' lease through the end of 2024 in Atlanta's Perimeter area and completed renovations on their expanded office suite in April. They hired IT provider Emerald Data Networks (emeralddata.net) and recently installed the BlueJeans conferencing system (bluejeans.com), technology changes that have increased both connectivity and savings for members.
Strategic new hires include 2 traders, a compliance specialist, a new internal accounting associate, and an operations executive assistant. Additionally, industry marketing consultant Heather Hawthorne (wordstudio.co) was brought on board as Director of Marketing & Communications after working independently for IFG since 2012.
"It's amazing to look back and see where we started from," says founder, President, and Co-CEO, Don Patrick. "What began as a small group of dedicated independent advisors grew into a large professional family I am very proud to lead. We've made the Top 25 Financial Planning and Advisory Firms list here in Atlanta since our inception and have been on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Top Small Workplaces list since 2015. I can't wait to see what the future holds. We're ready for it!"
