9. Global Wealth Advisors
Based out of Lewisville, Texas, Global Wealth Advisors, which manages $450 million in client assets, had just signed a new building lease as the pandemic took hold. With remote advising becoming the only form of advising, Kris Maksimovich (left, above), president and founder, departed the Dallas suburbs for the beaches of Jamaica, where he advised clients remotely.
Another member of Global Wealth Advisors, Kevin Curley II, traded the Texas landscape for something more island-like. He worked from Hawaii for a month, advising clients while overlooking the warm blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Meanwhile, Ben Murphy, also at Global Wealth Advisors, traded his suit and tie for something a little more country. With remote working and pandemic restrictions in place, Murphy relocated to his West Texas ranch, where he split he time between advising clients and looking after his cattle.
