Maher, attorney and CPA, founded Archford, a Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) practice, in 2013. He said he set out to make Archford a true leader in the financial industry by developing services to interconnect all areas of a person’s life to set up their family for financial success and freedom.
In just its third year of business, the firm made Financial Times’ Top 300 RIA Firms list. His team created a combined service model to provide clients with wealth management and accounting services under one roof to save them both time and money. He launched a consulting division to assist business owners with business continuation and succession planning. As a Certified Exit Plan Advisor, he also helps closely-held family businesses to establish resources for business owners in transition. As an award-winning, nationally recognized authority in estate planning, business transition and philanthropy, Jim is a sought-after trainer and presenter.
“I always share with my team that there are only two things in my life that have been individual accomplishments, that is my education and my wonderful family. Everything else is a reflection of the people I have been fortunate enough to work with throughout my career. I am extremely grateful to my colleagues at Archford and the cutting edge work we are producing to help others,” said Maher.
He will be honored at the Titan 100 awards on April 28 at “The Factory” in Chesterfield, Mo.
