In addition, she will develop and maintain new or existing broker-dealer relationships as the firm expands its offerings to include 1031 exchange products. Her prior career experience includes building and leading marketing teams within the independent broker-dealer and RIA space and for a managing broker-dealer, where her team successfully supported the firm’s multi-billion-dollar capital raising efforts.
Wheatley earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in mass communications with a concentration in public relations and advertising from St. Ambrose University, in Davenport, Iowa and her master’s in business administration from the Keller Graduate School of Management in Atlanta.
