TrueWealth's Lawson Tapped for UGA's Terry College of Business Young Alumni Board

ATLANTA (July 17, 2017) – TrueWealth Management’s Patrick Lawson, CFP®, has been invited to join the Young Alumni Board at the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business for a two-year term beginning this month. The Board’s mission is to develop initiatives that link students to alumni, foster a culture of giving, and support the college’s goal of excellence in education. Lawson will join a group of fellow Terry graduates from across the country who are under 35 years old and charged with outreach and engagement to Terry’s young alumni community.

“Patrick embodies TrueWealth’s values of integrity, optimism and accountability,” said TrueWealth President Michael Maiorano. “These are qualities that also make him an excellent fit for this Board. We look forward to seeing how Patrick will bring his knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm to impact the wider community in the years ahead.”

Originally from Smithfield, Va., Lawson joined TrueWealth in 2013 where he serves as a wealth advisor working with individuals and families to develop comprehensive financial plans and to provide strategic portfolio management. He also serves as a MoneyWise mentor through Buckhead Church, which offers free services to help individuals and families get their financial life on track. He holds a BBA in business management with a minor in religious studies from UGA and a Certificate of Financial Planning (CFP®) from the Terry College of Business (UGA) Executive Program. He, his wife McKenzie, and their toddler live in Atlanta.
