Tim Reynolds | Certified Financial Planner | Lennox & Addington | Napanee ON

Since entering the financial advisory industry in 2007, Tim has committed himself to helping his clients achieve their own definition of financial security and well-being. As a married father of three, and a homeowner, he understands the everyday needs, concerns, and uncertainties facing young families both today and in the future. He has also had an eye towards his own retirement, and with a large number of his clients either in or approaching retirement, has spent an large portion of his career to date helping these clients navigate through this complex time in their lives. This has given him both the experience and knowledge to advise in this area with confidence and wisdom.

Tim believes that “knowledge is power”, and set a goal early in his career to attain relevant professional designations and further his financial education. He completed the education requirements and obtained the Certified Professional Planner (CFP) designation as well as the Canadian Health Insurance Specialist (CHS) designation in the summer of 2011. These designations show his commitment to both his clients and his education, and give him the ability to confidently advise his clients. The next designation Tim is looking to attain is the Charter Life Underwriter (CLU), which he hopes to begin later this year.

Tim and his wife, Mary Ann, live in Napanee, with their children, Ross, Devin and Natalie.

Nicholas Walsh, B.A. Econ
Employee Benefits Specialist
The Great-West Life Assurance Company

Nick is a local who grew up 30 minutes west of Kingston in the Tyendinaga Township. He attended St. Theresa Secondary High School in Belleville where he graduated with honours.

Nick grew up with a passion for hockey and a determination to continually develop and move forward in his career. His work ethic and dedication allowed him the opportunity to fulfill his dream of playing NCAA hockey in the United States. Nick attended Dartmouth College in New Hampshire where he played four years of Division One hockey and graduated in 2012 with a degree in Economics.

Post graduation Nick continued his hockey career traveling the United States playing at the minor professional level. He started the season playing in Mississippi, was later called up to the Gwinnett Gladiators of the ECHL and eventually finished the season playing for the San Francisco Bulls.

After enjoying the great experience of playing hockey Nick decided to return his focus back to business. When he returned from the U.S. he took on the majority responsibility of his family business HockeyStickMan. This business, which started in 2010 by his brother Joey, collects top-of-the-line, broken hockey sticks, repairs them and sells them to local hockey players at an affordable price.
