40 Under 40: Nick Maxwell – LPL Financial

Feb 21, 2013 No Comments by

While attending Clovis High School, Nick Maxwell intended on becoming an engineer or an architect, but after experiencing a physics class he changed his mind.  As a youth he played baseball and tennis, and went on to graduate from Clovis High in 1996.  His next educational step was Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, and then Azusa Pacific University in southern California, where he earned a degree in kinesiology.

While at Azusa, he had the goal of being an athletic director, coach or teacher.  Upon receiving his degree, Maxwell completed graduate work to get his credential.  For the next five years, he taught math to junior high school students in southern California, and after his wife became pregnant with their first child he started his own investment company, Draft Theory.  After deciding that was too risky a venture, he began working at Edward Jones Investments, where he enjoyed managing investments and interacting with people.  After six years with the company, he made the move to LPL Financial in December of 2012, where he is a financial advisor and enjoys a private practice.  Many of his former clients from Edward Jones have remained with him.

Aside from work, Maxwell is on the Clovis Chamber of Commerce board of directors and heads its Finance Committee.  He was also the Clovis Chamber’s Ambassador of the Year in 2011.  He is currently the president of the Rotary Club of Clovis.  He and his wife, Tammy, live in Clovis with their young children, Jack, Emmy and Will.
