Dobyns Wealth Team Sponsors the 2018 Men of Valor Breakfast

We are so happy to have been a Title Sponsor of the 2018 Men of Valor Breakfast. Men of Valor is a prison ministry committed to winning men in prison to Jesus Christ and discipling them. Their purpose is to equip them to re-enter society as men of integrity – becoming givers to the community rather than takers.

A tangible example of the work being done is seen in the numbers. The recidivism rate (the tendency of a convicted criminal to reoffend) for men who participate in programming both before release and up to a year afterward – is between nine and 15% – far lower than the state and national average of 70%.

“Being a Title Sponsor of this amazing program is just another example of Southwestern Investment Groups continued commitment to stay involved in our local community,” said Jeff Dobyns, President of Southwestern Investment Group. “It reinforces our desire to give back and to help these men rejoin society. We have been blessed by the ministry of Men Of Valor and want to help however we can.”

Jeff Dobyns is named one of the top Financial Advisors in the state of Tennessee according to Barrons Financial Investment News. Dobyns Wealth Team along with Southwestern Investment Group currently manages over $3.2 Billion in assets and is part of Raymond James Financial Services.

Beyond crunching numbers and investment strategies, at SageSpring, we’re about building relationships. When you encounter Founder & President of SageSpring, Jeff Dobyns, it’s easy to understand why this is at the very heart of who we are as a firm. You won’t find stuffy formalities with Jeff; instead, you can expect to find him sharing a warm smile, communicating a compelling vision, or patiently untangling life’s complex challenges with clients. He believes in truly getting to know clients, understanding their aspirations and priorities, and navigating their financial plans with a tailored, comprehensive approach. Our team members have often been caught taking notes on Jeff’s effortless relationship skills from a distance, and we admire them for striving to learn from one of the best. 

Jeff’s financial expertise and wisdom are the perfect match to his innate people skills. Jeff holds the prestigious CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM certification, Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®), and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChLU®) designations, and has held executive positions with financial planning firms for more than two decades. 

His dedication extends beyond the office to the boardroom and the local community, where Jeff is passionate about giving back. He serves as Chairman of the Board of Men of Valor, a prison ministry and mentoring program. Jeff also serves on the board of Send Musicians to Prison, which shares hope, healing and restoration with the imprisoned through musicians & artists. Jeff actively supports other initiatives in the community by sitting on the board of The Signatry of Middle Tennessee and the Halftime Institute of Nashville. 

Witnessing his four children, Gracyn, Hunter, Tanner, and Logan, excel on the field is almost just as rewarding, if not more, than celebrating the victories of seeing his clients overcome obstacles and build wealth. Spending weekends boating on the lake, hiking mountain trails, and fishing with his family are the moments Jeff cherishes most. It’s this grounded perspective that reveals the true meaning of wealth for Jeff: not just numbers on a page, but the freedom to create experiences that enrich your life and the lives of those you love. When you choose the Dobyns McMillin Wealth Team, you choose more than financial expertise. You choose a partner who champions your dreams, celebrates your victories, and walks besides you on the path to achieving your unique goals.
