Garrett Culwell Recognized on 2019 Thrive List of Fastest-Growing Advisors

MINNEAPOLIS — Garrett Culwell, financial advisor at North Star Resource Group, has been named a recipient of the 2019 Thrive Awards today. The 2019 Thrive Awards list was compiled by measuring percentage revenue growth over the previous three years. The average revenue growth of Thrive Advisors is three times that of the overall industry.

“The Thrive Awards is unlike any other recognition program,” says editor-in-chief, David Armstrong. “Rather than acknowledging AUM or profitability, it recognizes advisors who are on the way up— those who have proven themselves skilled and ambitious by virtue of three solid years of revenue growth. We believe revenue growth is a metric that demonstrates advisor success in providing services of real value to clients and prospects, and key to building a sustainable business for the future.”

To qualify for the 2019 Awards Thrive list, applicants had to be based in the U.S., offer financial services to individual clients and be free of regulatory actions.

“Garrett’s growth and success can be attributed to his always providing great results and value to clients,” says North Star CEO, Ed Deutschlander. “We look forward to seeing what Garrett accomplishes next!”

Culwell has worked as a financial advisor at North Star since 2012, and in that time, he has worked at branches in Austin, Dallas and Cincinnati. Garrett focuses on providing a comprehensive financial service experience to his clients while helping them to grow and protect their wealth. Ultimately, Garrett’s goal is for all his clients to reach financial independence and to have the option to someday retire comfortably.
