JOHN HEACOCK JOINS HOOVER FINANCIAL ADVISORS
Malvern, PA – Well-known, industry-respected John L. Heacock recently became an integral part of the Hoover Financial Advisors, PC staff. His appointment as a financial advisor was announced by Pete Hoover, CFP®, company founder and CEO.
Heacock is currently working with a number of HFA clients and many of his own, which he transferred to his new firm. A big plus for HFA is the financial advisor’s Certified Family Business Specialist, CFBS, designation.
A second generation financial advisor, he began his career at his father Richard Heacock’s company in Haddonfield, New Jersey. Prior to joining HFA, he was with Atlas Advisory Group, and before that, Heacock was associated with several Fortune 100 organizations. He earned a B.A. degree from Haverford College, and holds numerous securities designations, as well as Life and Health Insurance advisory licenses. He resides in West Chester with his wife Jessica and two children. Heacock’s community involvement includes the Brad Wilby Memorial Foundation board of directors, Philadelphia Estate Planning Counsel membership and various Haverford College fundraising activities.
Hoover is pleased to welcome Heacock. “We couldn’t be happier,” he says. “John is a perfect fit for HFA. His integrity, enthusiasm for our industry and an unparalleled dedication to provide stellar personalized client service match our company culture.”
Heacock is equally gratified. “I always wanted to be part of a financial advisory team. There is only so much one person can do, and now I am able to expand services for clients. When I made the decision to change direction, I conducted a thorough search, and learned that Hoover Financial Services brings a comprehensive approach to wealth management. Its commitment to the fiduciary standard is a binding promise to always do what is in the best interest of the client. HFA guiding principles and ancillary services set it apart, and I am honored to be on the team.”
