This month, we're shining a celebratory light on member and volunteer Bill Wixon, president and owner of Wixon Advisors.
Wixon started working as an insurance underwriter in Boston and San Diego in his twenties, but it proved boring and isolating. After feeling unfulfilled, his career path shifted to financial services, and he opened Wixon Advisors in 1989.
Wixon served on FPA MN's public relations committee in the late 1990s and had fun answering financial questions by Pioneer Press readers. As PR Director from 2001-2002, Wixon dined and extolled the virtues of our chapter with media heavy hitters such as financial columnist Gail Marks-Jarvis, MPR journalist and author Chris Farrell, Star Tribune reporter/columnists Jennifer Bjorhus and Neal St. Anthony, and others.
"I explained how FPA MN served its members, our values, and how communities benefited from the charitable work of our members. Several of those in the media made it to some of our chapter meetings and spoke at them."
As FPA MN's Director of Partnerships, Bill Wixon's committee works with businesses aligning with the FPA and its mission. Partners enjoy a multitude of additional benefits and have access to over 700 members.
"Over the years, I've met many nice people at FPA meetings. Being a member has broadened my horizons and made me a better planner."
