Kirk Lowe

Kirk Lowe

Founder | Brand Guy

Kirk Lowe is constantly pushing for better, more efficient financial branding and marketing. He is one of those rare professionals who graciously shares everything he’s working on, having success with, and/or has failed miserably at.

Over 17+ years in financial branding, Kirk has worked with independent advisors, RIAs, IMOs, and BDs helping each find their unique points of differentiation then bring it to life in their marketing. Kirk’s clients have spanned the UNITED STATES, CANADA and AUSTRALIA.

Kirk has published many white papers, exercises, assessments, and media articles over the years – many archived in AdvisorU. He’s spoken at conferences, boot camps and done countless webinars. Kirk’s focus has been to help advisors see the big picture, focus on what matters, and then get caught up in the details that work.

Ray Gauthier

Ray Gauthier

Founder | Brand Guy

Ray has lived the financial executive role – for many years. Ray and Kirk combined forces in 2005 and slowly built a reputable, professional, influential financial branding firm.

Ray is often the voice of reason and simplicity when it coms to marketing. He’s also the master of frugal, organic tactics whenever possible. His fingerprints are all over Top Advisor Marketing and the influential writings.

Ray greatest passion is marketing simplicity – how do we get results without complicating things. When so many “marketing gurus” sell their unidimensional (silo) solutions, Ray’s focused on “what works” and “better ways”.

Ray is one of those guys who can build stuff, fix stuff, ride stuff, read stuff, and get stuff done.

Matthew Halloran

Partner | Brand & Podcast Guy "The Voice"

Matt got started in the financial services industry 20 years ago as a certified life and business coach.   As he became immersed in his client’s biggest needs, he built his knowledge and expertise as a financial branding and social media expert.  More recently, Matt has added podcasting to that list.

Matt respects how tough it is to be great and effective at marketing while running a practice, living a life, and loving a family. He teaches advisors how to be themselves, let their passions shine through and create strong brands that resonate with ideal prospects and centers of influence.

Matt’s first book “The Social Media Handbook for Financial Advisorsavailable on Amazon was a big hit. He’s been leading the social wave in financial services for years – teaching top advisors how to be human in an oftentimes inhuman industry. His second book “99 best ideas”, was an Amazon bestseller and is filled with marketing ideas.

In his list of accomplishments, Matt has served in the Navy, is a trained therapist, been a radio host, and worked as a financial professional too. Matt’s breadth of hands on experience positions him superbly to help financial professionals build the marketing side of their practices.  He’s been there, done that and has the T-Shirt.

Jessica Jackson

Jessica Jackson

Social Media Artisan

Jessica has always had a passion for the written word. In her early years, while her friends were kicking around a soccer ball or playing foursquare, you could find Jessica either reading or writing. Af school, Jessica would lean against the brickwall rereading books – often narrated by another of her passions, dogs.

Her love for stories evolved through her schooling and carreer to journalism. Jessica is in good company at Top Advisor Marketing– a marketing team with storytelling in its DNA.

Jessica helps financial advisors engage with their online audience in meaningful and genuine ways. She believes that when financial advisors tell stories about their brands, their audience can connect with them on a human level. Only then can financial advisors use social media to its utmost potential: to build and strengthen relationships.

Jessica has a Masters of Journalism and Communications degree. She is a fan of dogs, weightlifting, libraries and chocolate cake.
