Allen loves his hometown and the community he serves. A graduate of Ardmore High School and Oklahoma State University, he began his investment career in 2008, just a few months before the freefall of the great recession began. He describes his initiation as “trial by fire” and says he wouldn’t trade that experience for anything. Allen takes his responsibility to clients and their wealth as caring for a close family member. “We are stewards of our client’s legacy and this team works to that end daily,” he remarked.
Allen has served on the Board of Directors of Ardmore Chamber of Commerce and Ardmore Young Professionals. He currently serves on the Board of the Oklahoma Wildlife Management Association and the Board and Investment Committee of Sunshine Industries, Inc. Outside of the office, family and outdoor activities are Allen’s main passions. He enjoys taking his family and friends hunting, fishing, boating, and exploring anywhere the trail takes them. Now, other than his family, he receives the most joy by introducing a beginner or young person into the great outdoors.
