"Mark Pruitt took his time getting to the financial services industry, spending the early years of his business career as a pastor," said Daniel Williams, editor of Senior Market Advisor. "However, he brings those same qualities—including integrity, impeccable communication skills and empathy for his clients—to his advisory practice. These traits made him an ideal choice for our 2012 Advisor of the Year."

Pruitt uses his experience as a minister of 18 years to help people with their financial lives. On the surface, the life of a minister and the job of a financial advisor would seem quite different. A minister tends to the spiritual needs of his church, while an advisor focuses on the dollars and cents of a person's life. Yet Pruitt says that as a minister, he dealt with many of the same issues he does now as the head of Strategic Estate Planning Services, Inc. in Dallas. Find out more about his journey to Advisor of the Year, and how his practice as a Minister helped him get there.

Pruitt will be featured on the cover of the September issue of Senior Market Advisor—in print and online. To learn more about the 2012 Advisor of the Year finalists, view their profiles online at
