Our Transition to SageSpring Wealth Partners

We are truly thrilled to share with you our rebrand from Southwestern Investment Group to SageSpring. Our firm’s tremendous growth over the last decade drove us to reflect and envision where we would like to be as a firm in the next 20 years. After months of discussion and planning, we embarked on the journey to transition beyond the Southwestern Family of Companies to a new, independently-owned RIA organization. 

Our name – SageSpring – reflects our desire to offer wise guidance and cultivate a long-lasting relationship with you, because our priority is your wellbeing.  We continue to be dedicated to our mission of putting your needs first, so that ultimately, we can provide you with the best plans to improve your financial life and build wealth; wealth that is not only found in money alone but within your communities and life itself.  

In addition to the great benefits of our rebrand, this transition has helped us become better stewards of your time, energy, and financial wellbeing. Although our name has changed, rest assured that our unwavering commitment to our values–and to you–has not changed at all. We are the same people with the same expertise and dedication to helping you build a life of prosperity.  We are excited for what’s to come and we believe this new chapter is the stepping stone for even greater success in the next 20 years.

We invite you to stay connected with us and join us on our new journey as SageSpring. We are always here to help you, so if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your advisor. We are grateful for the opportunity to invest in you as you invest in your future

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.
