Our Legacy

Our legacy officially began in the year 2000, when Bryan Vowels left a career in the banking industry to join A.G. Edwards & Sons, Inc., a legacy firm of Wells Fargo Advisors.  However, the story actually began decades before through his mother, JoAnn Vowels.

“My mother was a pioneer.  She was one of the first female financial advisors in our area and on of a small percentage of women financial advisors in the industry when she started in the 1970's.”  JoAnn served for over 35 years in the industry including the last 20 years with A.G. Edwards & Sons. 

Discussions on investing were common in the Vowels household.  Bryan now jokes that he thought every kid grew up watching Louis Ruykeyser's Wall Street Week on Sunday afternoons.

Bryan stated, “My mother not only taught me about investing, but also how to do the very best in serving the individuals and families who allow me the opportunity to serve as their financial advisor.”  Her love for the profession lit a passion for investing and financial planning within Bryan.  

“We absolutely love helping our clients visualize their futures and develop a plan that will allow them to make that future possible.  This includes helping our clients eliminate common investor mistakes and help them identify and minimize the financial risk of unexpected events that life throws at us,” says Bryan.

 

Building Our Team         

After significant early growth in the business, Bryan embarked in 2005 to build a team that could better serve his clients.  He says, “When we started the team it was a completely unique idea in our area and a rather new concept in the industry.  My vision was always to create a team.  I believed having a strong team with different talents and skills would add tremendous value to our clients.”

It only made sense to invite Troy Stovern to join the firm.  Bryan and Troy attended Joplin High School together, both graduated from Missouri Southern State University with degrees in economics/finance, and both worked for the United States Treasury Department as National Bank Examiners.  After leaving the Treasury Department, Troy had a successful career in pharmaceutical sales both in St. Louis and Joplin, MO.  He joined the team in 2005.  “Troy immediately came to mind.  His integrity, values, background in the financial industry, and – most importantly – my deep respect for how he treats others, make him a perfect fit for our team and our clients.”

Cari Ray and Maegan Linden complement the team at Vowels & Stovern Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors.  Cari, Client Associate, serves as the Chief Operations Officer for the team.  She came to Wells Fargo Advisors in 2017 after 14 years as Assistant Branch Manager at Southwest Missouri Bank. Maegan joined the firm in 2009 and the team in 2013.

“Cari is caring and enthusiastic about doing the right thing for everyone she meets.  Maegan's attitude and abilities make her a tremendous asset to the team,” says Bryan.
