Scottsdale-based Wilde Wealth Management Group’s Cofounder and Managing Director Trevor Wilde --- a Scottsdale resident --- has been named to the board of directors for Child Crisis Arizona.
For over 43 years, Child Crisis Arizona has served the Valley’s vulnerable children and families and is committed to ending child abuse and neglect through prevention, education and intervention programs, according to a press release.
“Child Crisis offers emergency shelters for children, teen moms and their babies, group home for teens in the foster care system, foster care and adoption services, as well community-wide parenting classes, workshops, support groups and early education programs for low-income families,” Mr. Wilde said in a prepared statement. “A father of four daughters myself, this cause especially hits home for me.”
Mr. Wilde, who Barron’s recently named to its annual list of top 1,200 advisors nationwide and No. 1 overall in Arizona, formally joins the board after his team fundraised for the organization, raising over $150,000 in recent years as a result of their combined efforts.
In addition to the board appointment, Wilde Wealth recently partnered with Child Crisis this week to sponsor more than 6,000 meals to local families in need, all available curbside and at no cost to the families or organization.
As cofounder and managing director of Wilde Wealth, Mr. Wilde is an investment advisor representative who holds the Accredited Investment Fiduciary designation, which is the mark of commitment to a standard of investment fiduciary excellence.
The Phoenix Business Journal also recognized him in 2018 as among the Most Admired Leaders in Arizona. He’s also among the Top 15 Advisors out of over 1,200 Cetera Advisors annually since 2012, a release states.
Mr. Wilde began his work in the industry in 2000, initially at a large firm primarily focused on retirement planning and investments.
Eager to offer a deeper breadth of expertise and strategic planning to his clients, he partnered with his father Bill in 2003 to found an independent practice, Wilde Wealth Management Group.
Their mission was two-fold: to offer boutique, customized investment planning advice and to offer clients expanded in-house service offerings from fellow independent specialists in the fields of legal, taxes, risk management, family services, real estate and insurance.
Over the past two decades, Trevor Wilde, who earned his Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix, has helped grow the firm across Arizona and throughout the Southwest.
He is recruiting new advisors for all his offices across Arizona, which are in Scottsdale, Tempe, Glendale, Tucson and Payson. There is also a satellite office in Terra Haute, Indiana.
