PURPOSE DRIVEN & PASSIONATE FOR RESULTS
President and CEO
Brian started his retirement career after leaving the private wealth sector, where he spent three years working with Wall Street traders funding projects using adverse trading trends from natural gas and oil. During this same time, Brian was part of the team that helped to open the New York based hedge fund, Prodigy Asset Management. It was during this period in his career where he learned many valuable financial strategies and the power of leveraging assets. His knowledge of these strategies allowed him to continue exceling in retirement planning today for both his colleagues and clients.
In 2005, he began working with URL Insurance Group out of Harrisburg Pennsylvania. The knowledge he learned from the private wealth sector gave him an advantage with retirement planning. He is able to look at all angles in depth using different strategies regarding retirement planning for the senior sector.
Currently, Brian is the President of York Financial Wellness Group, LLC and Retirement Planners of Central Pennsylvania. He continues to build a solid team under the support of URL Insurance Group and several independent financial institutions. Brian spends hours daily reading and researching the retirement planning landscape to better his colleagues as well as the clients he works with on an individual basis.
In Brian’s personal time, he likes to play golf, go fishing and hunting. He is also a huge sports fan, especially when it comes to Penn State football and wrestling.

“We each began our careers working for large insurance-based financial firms. Early on, we both sensed we were working within business cultures that did not promote the development of deeper client relationships—the kind of relationships from which we could frame and provide more personalized, comprehensive financial planning. This realization became increasingly clear as our careers at separate firms continued to evolve.” — Jeffrey West
In 2005, Jeff decided to start a new company that would focus on providing high quality personalized financial advice. The new firm, Freedom Financial Wealth Management, emphasized forming a trusting relationship with each client and then working as an independent and collaborative advisor to provide highly customized financial planning solutions. Steve’s introduction to the Freedom Financial client emphasis was like discovering a perfect fit, and he joined the firm in 2006.
“Our willingness to invest the time needed to build an accurate understanding of our clients’ needs and objectives underscores our holistic approach. We believe that building a complete life picture for every client provides a fundamental advantage as planning strategies are developed. Our client relationships are our most valuable asset.” — Steve Fetterhoff
