Our Vision of True Wealth Management requires expertise across a number of disciplines. People with years of time dedicated to the areas within which they will provide counsel to you as well as a broad enough range of life and professional experience for them to put their advice in proper context.
With that goal in mind, we have drawn together a group of talented and experienced professionals to ensure that you receive truly comprehensive, ethical, objective and expert advice that deserves the confidence of not only you, but of your other advisors, CPA's and Attorneys.
Nobody embodies that goal more than one of our founding partners and President, Larry Paddock.
Larry started in the investment industry over 40 years ago. His experience encompasses working with individual and institutional clients, managing investments for a bank trust department, a $1 billion fixed income portfolio for a state pension fund. He capped his career as a National Director for Frank Russell Investment Management Company.
Larrys’ wide ranging experience in the investment world through markets both good and bad, delivering world class service to individuals and institutions, management experience and reputation for integrity and trustworthiness, provides the firm foundation for the service Thompson Creek wants to deliver to you.
The other half of our founding partnership is Lance Paddock. A trained Wealth Management Specialist (WMS) Lance serves as Thompson Creek’s CEO and Director of Investment Strategy.
As our Chief Executive Officer Lance uses his broad training across the various aspects of Wealth Management to coordinate the many highly trained experts essential to delivering customized, consistent and effective advice. Drawing upon his own experience as a small businessperson, Lance brings a keen understanding of the challenges business owners and professionals face.
As Director of Investment Strategy Lance works with our team to insure that each clients portfolio is not only tailored to their unique goals and objectives, but does so in the context of a well thought out firm-wide strategy to deal effectively with the ever changing market environment.
Prior to helping found Thompson Creek, Lance developed a reputation for responsible and effective portfolio management as Director of Investment Strategy for Peters Wealth Advisors. His early warnings of an impending market crisis solidified his reputation for investment acumen and willingness to put the long-term welfare of investors over short-term performance.
