Tom already knew by middle school that he wanted to be a financial advisor. Today, he is the founder, president and CEO of The Noble Group. Talk about fulfilling a goal!
Tom’s career in the financial services industry spans over 30 years. His successful career as an investment advisor representative began in 1986 with Thomson McKinnon in Lafayette, Louisiana. In 1989, he and his family relocated to Houston, Texas. As Tom continued to build his corporate client base, he began to recognize the company’s need for guidance in retirement plans as well as all aspects of human resources and employee benefits. In 1996, Tom founded The Noble Group.
Ever since, he has been devoted to helping others fulfill their goals. He helps his corporate clients with building and maintaining top-tier retirement plans, and helps his team of advisors serve their clients well while building their own successful careers.
He advises on more than $1 billion in assets, encompassing over 120 corporate retirement plans that he can formally sign on to as a 3(21) fiduciary. Furthermore, he is a trustee for The Noble Group 401(k) plan and is a member of the investment committee.
As an Accredited Investment Fiduciary®, Tom has extensive knowledge in investment fiduciary standards of care and key areas such as plan distributions, plan design and implementation, plan establishment and operation, and fiduciary issues.
