Brandon Russ joined the WPWealth group in 2019. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, he helps his clients in a variety of ways, anywhere from completing large transactions to comprehensive financial planning for all generations. Brandon earned his B.S. in Financial Counseling and Planning from Purdue University.
Shortly after joining WPWealth, Brandon saw the opportunity to spread his knowledge to young adults to help guide them to make strategic financial decisions. He spearheaded the initiative to start the financial literacy podcast called, “Start Now, Success Later.” The Whitley Penn Talks series features industry experts as they walk through topics such as budgeting and debt management, benefits, 401(k) plans, first-time tax filings, and more. The series has had great success, even being featured on INSIDE Public Accounting. He hopes to continue his success into the Dallas and Plano market as WPWealth expands its presence in Texas.
Outside of the office, Brandon is a mentor at the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards and a member of the Purdue University Alumni Association. A few of his hobbies include spending time with friends, traveling, exercising, and attending sporting events.
