Brian Hartman , CFP

Business Development Director

I work with our advisors on a daily basis by helping them utilize all the tools and products available through our broker-dealer, Lincoln Financial Securities. I assist in developing optimal strategies for their advisory, brokerage and planning business. If I can’t help directly I leverage the resources at Lincoln to get the answer they need.

I graduated from the University of Kentucky in May of 1999 with Bachelors of Business Administration-Finance. During my sixteen years in the financial services industry I have obtained the Series 7, Series 24, Series 63, Series 65 and life & variable annuity insurance state license. In 2015 I completed Northwestern University’s self-paced Certified Financial Planner certificate coursework and earned my CFP(Certified Financial Planner) designation. The majority of my career has been with an introducing broker/dealer that cleared through Fidelity’s National Financial Services. While there I primarily functioned as a financial advisor helping clients with their investment needs. Over the years my role evolved into Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer, allowing me work closely with FINRA and the KY Department of Financial Institutions.

I landed in Lexington to attend UK after growing up in Ashland, KY. My wife and I stay busy shuttling our two daughters to club soccer practice and games. I have been a volunteer coach with the YMCA and Iam3rd for over a decade. I love to play in our local tennis leagues and tournaments, and have been serving on the local USTA board, the Tennis Association of Central Kentucky. When I can find the time I enjoy running road races and hiking. I need to stay active because I have an insatiable love of doughnuts!
