Regarding Wealth Steward's win, Financial Planning Standards Council President and CEO, Cary List had this to say:
“In the 20 years I’ve known Paul, he has always been a true champion for the importance of sound financial planning, for bringing creative solutions to clients, and for promoting the added value financial planning brings to the professional accounting community. It is great to see Paul recognized for his hard work.”
