According to chief executive officer Dana Layton, winners of the 2011 Best of State Awards have been rated and judged on their impact on the community, excellence and achievement, and innovation and originality. This year’s judging was hosted by Salt Lake community College’s Miller Business Resource Center and took place over a period of four full days. An independent judging process, featuring judges with category-specific credentials, has resulted in a confidential tabulation of results by the Gilbert & Steward accounting firm.

“It is a privilege to receive this recognition,” said Nathan White, Paragon’s chief investment officer. “I have 15 years of experience in the investment services industry, and I am impressed with Paragon’s investment strategies and overall business structure.”

Paragon Wealth Management has focused on perfecting their investment strategies for the past 25 years. Young started what is now called Paragon Wealth Management in 1986 when he sold his 12 franchise businesses and wanted to do more with his money. He spent the next year researching investment methods, and later started The Center for Financial Excellence. The name was changed to Paragon Capital Management and was registered with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) in 1993. It has since been changed to Paragon Wealth Management.
