Profile: Jamie Price, President and CEO, Advisor Group
From Real Assets Adviser:
There were two parental “mandatories” in life that Jamie Price and his three brothers were required to fulfill: One was the requirement to get a college education in any course of study they were passionate about, and the second was to take four years of speech in high school.
Price admits to resenting his parents for the latter mandate, only to realize during his professional career the enormous value the speech classes provided by building his confidence and enhancing his leadership capabilities.
“Ninety percent of leadership happens through conversation,” says Price, who is now president and CEO of Advisor Group, one of the largest networks of independent financial advisers.
