“When we started the business back in 2005, we wanted to create an environment that empowers employees to look for solutions outside of what’s always been done,” said Advisors Excel Co-Founder David Callanan. “By setting and communicating a clear vision for the company, we’ve given team members the freedom to come up with great ideas and execute them. As a result, we are doing the best work for the financial professionals we serve and ultimately helping them make a difference in the life of their clients.”

“I think one of the things that contributes to a great working atmosphere is our open-door policy at Advisors Excel,” said Co-Founder Cody Foster. “We are constantly taking the temperature in the office through monthly surveys and quarterly lunches with staff and members of the leadership team to ensure everyone has a positive working experience. We want people to be happy at the office and love what they are doing,” said Foster.

Advisors Excel employees completed 365 surveys, resulting in a 90 percent confidence level and a margin of error of ± 2.39.
