Homewood, AL (September 25, 2020)Southwestern Investment Group, an independent wealth management company with more than 40 teams across the country, is pleased to announce the promotion of Jesse Scroggins, Senior Vice President of the Jesse Scroggins Wealth Team in Homewood, Alabama. Scroggins was previously Vice President of his team before reaching a significant milestone in his advising career, based on the client assets he and his team manage. 

Now holding the title of Senior Vice President, Scroggins is an Accredited Asset Management Specialist (AAMS). A graduate of the University of Alabama, Scroggins has worked with individuals and families in Birmingham for more than ten years. This promotion recognizes Scroggins’ consistent client success and is a landmark step in his career.

As Scroggins is appreciative of the mentorship-centric approach at Southwestern Investment Group, he will now begin working with a new mentee, Evan Porter. With a goal of transitioning to be a financial advisor, Porter will spend time learning about financial advising and the investment world from a successful advisor.
