“‘Putting clients first’ was a novel idea when David and I started Rowland Carmichael in 1987. For some firms, it’s just a slogan. For us, maintaining a steadfast commitment to our clients’ goals has been one of our core values for a quarter of a century.”
TIM ROWLAND‘s clients include owners and key employees of some of Arizona’s most successful family businesses. They count on Tim as an essential advisor in maximizing the value of their personal assets and corporate retirement plans and in fulfilling their support of community and charitable organizations.
Giving back to the community is as important for Tim as it is for his clients. Tim has a long personal tradition of servant leadership in and generous support of a wide range of worthy organizations, including current and recent involvement in the American Cancer Society (locally and nationally), Friends of Small Business, Duet (Partners in Health and Aging) and Christians in Commerce (an international ecumenical organization at both the local and national levels).
Tim and his wife, Celesta, live in Phoenix. They have three adult sons – a middle school science teacher in Maryland, an artist in New York City, and a musician in Phoenix – and three grandchildren.
WHY I BECAME A WEALTH MANAGER
“I wanted to help individuals and families pursue and achieve the things that are most important in their lives. For many of our clients – even some of the wealthiest and most sophisticated – issues associated with finances and investments are a source of frustration, mystery and stress. When I can free my clients from details and help remove the stress, they are better positioned – emotionally and financially – to fulfill their purpose and achieve objectives to which they are truly committed.”
HOW I AM DIFFERENT FROM OTHER WEALTH MANAGERS
“I believe that the team that David and I have assembled at Rowland Carmichael is a distinguishing quality and offers a true competitive advantage for us and for our clients. My 30-plus years of experience, through all kinds of markets and scenarios, coupled with the energy and talent of our younger team members, offers our clients unique comfort in knowing we can work with them, their children and ultimately their grandchildren for decades to come.”
WHAT I MOST ENJOY ABOUT MY WORK
“It is thrilling to see our clients live life to the fullest, doing things that have meaning and purpose. We can really have a positive impact on marriages, families, charities and the community through what we do and how we do it for our clients. What a blessing!”
