Research President R.J. Shook proudly announced that “seeing the incredible women on this list shows clients are demanding diversity and want to see advisors that look like them. It’s an honor to highlight the women who are making a difference in their clients’ lives. This ranking isn’t just about the numbers; it showcases role models – advisors that are leaders, offering best practices, and providing the highest-quality experience.”
The extensive nationwide ranking of 1,000 female advisors is based on SHOOK Research, including a proprietary algorithm to weigh additional considerations such as revenue trends, assets under management, and industry experience. DeLynn was one of 11 women selected in Alabama, four of which are located in Birmingham.
“It’s incredibly rewarding to be recognized by an influential outlet like Forbes, especially after a year spent facing unprecedented challenges,” said Bridgeworth CEO DeLynn Zell. “We continue to stay true to our clients, team and community, focusing on what is most important to us at Bridgeworth, and an honor like this is evidence of us prioritizing the right things.”
