Perkins attends third producer conference in 2019
STEUBENVILLE — Ken Perkins, financial adviser with Tri-State Financial Services, attended his third producer conference hosted by Cetera Advisor Networks in 2019.
Perkins and his wife, Becky, in February attended the Circle of Excellence Conference at the J.W. Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort, Marco Island Fla. In July, they were recognized once again as a leader in the financial services field at the Cetera Advisor Networks Connect Conference at the Hyatt Regency Convention Center in Denver, and they attended the Cetera Advisor Networks Premier Client Division meeting of 114 elite-level producers held at the J.W. Marriott in Chicago.
The premiere division meeting brought together home office executives from Cetera, speakers and portfolio managers with leading advisers from across the country to discuss changes in the financial services industry as well as the growth seen at Cetera during the past two years and expected growth into the future. The event recognized an exclusive group of advisers, senior leaders and strategic partners.
Since joining Cetera through a broker/dealer acquisition in 2013, this was Perkins’ first qualification to attend the premier meeting. Perkins ranks in the top 3 percent of all advisers associated with Cetera, and is ranked 270 of the more than 7,000 advisers in the United States.
Tri-State Financial Services was established by Perkins in March 1985 as a MetLife affiliate and continued as an affiliate of MetLife until 2013, when the independent broker dealer division was sold to Cetera. Perkins has qualified annually for leaders or president’s conferences since 1985.
