Advisory Board

Our firm Founder, John Donovan, created his first Advisory Board in 2007 with the purpose of gaining ongoing guidance and feedback from some of his most trusted and respected clients to help him better serve his clients and grow his practice.  That same spirit and objective continues with the Advisory Board at Longhorn Wealth Management Group.  

Today, we maintain an Advisory Board of five members who meet 3 times per year to review, analyze and strategize on all aspects of the firm's services, operations, marketing and management. Please see our current Advisory Board Members listed below, as well as our Alumni Advisory Board Members encompassing all of those who have served on the Board going all the way back to John's original Board in 2007.
