Thursday May 30th, 2024

Representatives from Thielen & Associates, Inc. were celebrated as exceptional affiliates of Avantax® Inc., a leader in tax-focused financial planning and wealth management, during the invitation-only Avantax Elite Summit 2024 in Nassau, Bahamas.

A small contingent of independent Avantax Financial Professionals was invited to attend the Avantax Elite Summit, held May 19-22 at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar resort in the Bahamas. During the Avantax Elite Summit, firms are recognized for their exemplary client service and business achievements and have the opportunity to network with other leading firms in the Avantax Community while meeting leadership from Avantax and Cetera Holdings, which acquired Avantax last year, and Cetera Holdings’ affiliates (collectively Cetera).

“We are honored to be recognized by Avantax at this distinguished event. Our commitment to providing exceptional service to our clients is unwavering, and it is a true privilege to be acknowledged as one of the leading firms in our industry. We owe this recognition to our wonderful clients who trust us with their business," said Paula Thielen, Managing Partner of Thielen & Associates, Inc.

Successful Avantax firms like Thielen & Associates, Inc. are committed to changing clients’ lives by having deep and trusted relationships with their clients and delivering the tax-focused financial planning and wealth management needed throughout their financial journey.

“The Avantax Elite Summit was a particularly momentous event this year as our Financial Professionals were joined with the Cetera leadership team to learn more about the exciting opportunities ahead as we further assimilate with Cetera,” said Avantax President Todd Mackay. “The Avantax Elite Summit is also a time when my leadership team and other Home Office staff can, in a more intimate setting, hear our leading Financial Professionals’ needs so we can make business adjustments that enable us to serve them even better while helping them fulfill their purpose.”
