Within the past year, The American College formed the Millennial Advisory Task Force after discovering a need for a platform where top young advisors could collaborate and share ideas. Born from the Task Force was the Millennial Advisor Award, which honors a select group of individuals annually under the age of 35 who have proven outstanding performance and leadership in their careers in the financial industry, as well as a commitment to serving their communities. The five recipients of the 2016 inaugural awards were selected by the Task Force from a long list of nominees.

“It is an honor to receive this award and a privilege to have been recognized by industry legends who have contributed so much to our profession,” said Hernandez. “We hope to continue to make you proud in the coming decades.”

Hernandez is a Financial Advisor based in North Star’s Denver, CO office.
