Management Team

 

  LeRoy Twisdale, CLTC

  Partner

I was born and raised in Stuttgart, AR. I was a member of the Stuttgart Ricebirds baseball team as well as the Ricemen American Legion baseball team where I helped win the AAA State title in 1992. I moved to Texarkana shortly after finishing college in 1997. I received a BA Degree in marketing as well as a minor in finance from Ouachita Baptist University. I played baseball for OBU Tigers and my sophomore year, I met my beautiful wife Jennifer, who is a school teacher at Pleasant Grove Elementary School. Jennifer and I have two handsome sons, Parker & Hudson and they keep Mom & Dad extremely busy with all of their extracurricular activities, especially during baseball season where I coach both boys' teams. Family is everything to Jenny and I, and we believe that God uses the family to teach us all about His love.

I joined the financial services industry 12 years ago with the New York Life.  During that time my passion was helping small business owners with every aspect of their planning needs. I believe that integrity along with a client centered approach to planning has led to my success. I was an Investment Adviser Representative for Eagle Strategies LLC.

I have been recognized throughout the industry with numerous awards and have achieved my CLTC designation, but I will tell you my biggest accomplishment is being a member of the MDRT. I  am former President and current board member of the Four States National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors. I am  a member of Heritage Baptist Church. I love hunting, fishing, baseball and golf, but most of all I love spending time with my family.
