A Man with a Flair for Finance
Getting your future finances squared away and planning for your picture of retirement is important no matter where you live. For residents in Cocoa Beach, there’s one man that has been helping Space Coast residents for nearly two decades to do just that. Meet Justin Connors, founder & CEO of Connors Wealth Management, a financial planning and investment management firm with a focus on client service. Born and raised in Cocoa Beach, Justin Connors has been doling out proactive financial advice for 18 years to clients he firmly believes are family. That’s a big part of the secret of his success—that and teamwork. The formula has been so successful that the firm just opened its third branch in Suntree. “Trust and transparency are the foundation of strong financial planning and investment risk management,” Connors explains. “But they are also the qualities that have allowed me to bolster the community in which I was born and raised.” As a “local boy done good,” Connors and his wife Corine are not just focused on the business: they believe in giving back locally and nationally. Here at home, the Connors support such causes as Family Promise of Brevard, Our Savior Catholic School—where he sits on the council and helps out with their annual parish fair—and the Brevard/Space Coast chapter of the Executive Women’s Golf Association. On a national level, the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Alzheimer’s Association and the Ronald McDonald House Charities all benefit from their patronage. The Connors also donate supplies, mentor youths and sponsor events whenever the opportunity for paying it forward arises. They believe in creating a better community for their three daughters. When asked how they pick groups to support, the answer is simple: where a need exists, it’s meaningful, and there’s a passion for the organization. “Giving back isn’t strictly limited to charitable contributions and volunteering,” Connors is quick to add. One equally important aspect to bolstering community is by providing local jobs through growing business and increasing staff, which is a goal they are grateful to have been fortunate enough to achieve. So, how did he get to be the altruistic family man that he is today? “The Cocoa Beach community shaped me – it is why I chose to run a business and raise a family here,” Connors says. Although he graduated from Norwich University, the Military College of Vermont, there is no other place where he would choose to live. All of this, however, is what you see on the surface of Justin Connors. What you’d see if you scratched beneath the surface is what family and friends know and appreciate about him. Like the fact that he values spending time with his family more than anything else; he loves pizza and anything wrapped in bacon (who doesn’t?); his favorite holiday is Christmas (more family time!); and his favorite movie is “Rollerball.” Now that you’ve met the bacon-loving family man with a head for finance and a generous streak, if you’ve been putting off getting your financial ducks in a row for the future, now’s the time to come have a conversation. Whether you’ve been in the workforce for a while or just starting out planning for your family, Connors will emphasize that strong financial planning for the future starts now. And you can find a resource to help you right across from the waves here in Cocoa Beach. Connors Wealth Management 101 N.
