Kent C. Thiessen, CLU®, ChFC®
Chief Investment Officer & Wealth Strategist
Kent graduated from the University of North Texas in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Early in his career, he was a regional sales manager for a U.S.-based consumer pesticide manufacturer. Eventually, traveling coast to coast, as well as, the many days and nights away from his family became too large of a sacrifice. So, after 15 years, he decided to completely change careers and joined the ACT firm.
Professionally, Kent has obtained both the Charted Financial Consultant (ChFC®) and Certified Life Underwriter (CLU®) designations from the American College of Financial Services. He has a strong passion for educating others, both in an individual setting, and in the classroom at University Workshops that he co-teaches with the other members of ACT Wealth Strategies.
Kent married his wonderful wife, Elizabeth, in 1997, and they have 3 beautiful daughters, Sydney, Mackenzie and Avery. When he is not empowering his clients to achieve remarkable things, he enjoys coaching his daughters, snow skiing, traveling, playing golf & music, and spending time with his family and friends. He also stays active in his community by serving and leading in his local church and small group community.
