Provo, Utah (PRWEB) December 16, 2011
Paragon Wealth Management, originally called The Center for Financial Excellence, celebrated 25 years of business this month.
Dave Young, president and founder of Paragon Wealth Management, started The Center for Financial Excellence in 1986 to give investors an opportunity to do more with their money.
“I originally started Paragon to manage money,” said Young. “I sold over a dozen businesses I owned, and wanted to invest the proceeds, but wasn’t able to find an investment advisor who met my needs. I spent the next year researching different investment methods and then started The Center for Financial Excellence.”
The company was registered with the SEC in 1993, and the name was changed to Paragon Capital Management. It was changed to Paragon Wealth Management several years later.
“This is a difficult industry to be in,” said Young. "We are happy to be a successful business this long."
Paragon's team celebrated their anniversary this month at their office in Provo, Utah with a cake, balloons and happy employees. Visit Paragon's YouTube Channel to watch a video of the celebration.
