Managing Principal

My clients are my boss. I work for them and put their well-being first.”

- Parker Perkins III


I whole heartedly believe in the Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network value of putting clients first. As an independent advisor, I am not bound by product quotas and instead I focus solely on my clients’ unique financial needs and on establishing strategies to help them reach their goals.

My style is to meet face-to-face in order to build a rapport and really get to know what each client’s priorities are. I will make house calls and discuss how I can help you create a plan tailored specifically to your needs. No question is too small and I am always available to talk.

Contact me today for a second opinion on your investments or help with defining and planning for your financial goals.


I have 22 years of experience in the financial industry. I was the Branch Manager of an A. G. Edwards office in Virginia (a predecessor company of Wells Fargo Advisors) for several years before moving to Raleigh, NC. I was also the Assistant Branch Manager of a very large branch in Raleigh for four years before I chose to focus exclusively on my clients’ needs instead of office management.

I have experience working with several firms in the industry and have extensive training as a result of this. My firm offers a wide range of services, from selecting individual investments to developing a unique retirement or estate plan.

I graduated from Blue Ridge Boarding School in Charlottesville, Virginia for high school and am a graduate of James Madison University. GO Dukes!

After college graduation, I served in the U.S. Marine Corps as an officer for eight years which is two tours. I served in the First Gulf War and was in an infantry battalion my first tour participating two Western Pacific deployments. My second tour I was very honored to be stationed at Marine Barracks 8th & I in Washington, DC. There I worked as a presidential military aide at the White House for two years during President Bill Clinton’s administration. My one claim to fame is that I escorted Bob Hope on his last visit in 1995. When I left active duty, I held the rank of Captain.

When I am not at the office, you can find me volunteering locally for the Admissions Office at James Madison University at college fairs or enjoying quality time with my wife Sarah and two children, Parker and Chloe. I am also very passionate about staying active and am an avid mountain biker.
