Representatives of the Village of Warwick, the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce and new partners Ken Ford and Mark Lange of Warwick Valley Financial Advisors gathered Thursday, June 30th for an official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony announcing the new financial firm and partnership.
Ken Ford has been in the financial industry for over fifteen years. He started his career in leading regional firms such as Ryan Beck and Tucker Anthony. His desire to offer his clients independent and objective guidance led him to join LPL Financial, the largest independent broker/dealer nationwide*. He was President and Founder of Ford Wealth Management in Hoboken, NJ. Ken’s vision was to provide personalized financial services in a hometown setting. Last fall he moved his family and the firm to Warwick where he and his wife, Femi, are deeply connected.
Mark Lange has been affiliated with LPL Financial for 10 years located at Morristown Financial in Morristown, NJ. He started his career in the financial industry as a college intern designing commodities models at Shearson Loeb Rhoades. Upon completion of his bachelor’s degree studies at Upsala College, Mark joined Cardell and Associates, an independent broker dealer, as its marketing services coordinator. His desire to work with individual clients led him to a position with American Express Financial Advisors, where he served as both a personal financial advisor and a training manager. In addition, his ambition for independence drove him first to Nathan and Lewis Securities and finally to the largest independent LPL Financial, where he concentrated on personal and business planning.
Mark and Ken met through their affiliation with LPL Financial. Combined, the two have more than 40 years of financial experience. The decision to create Warwick Valley Financial Advisors was not a hard one. The two share the same philosophies, work ethic and mission to help people make informed financial decisions regarding retirement planning, estate planning, education planning, trust services, annuities, and life insurance. The new firm is a member of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce, The Pine Island Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club.
