Champ Rawls, CLU®

champ-rawls-family-business-succession-planner

Being a part of his own family’s business, Champ has a unique insight into the difficulties, challenges, and triumphs that our clients face when combining family and business.

Champ Rawls has been officially associated with The Rawls Group since 2012, although it could be said that he became a part of the team in 1984, when he was born into the family business. Champ earned his undergraduate degree from Denison University in Granville, Ohio, with a major in Economics. Just as we recommend to our clients who have children who want to join the family business, Champ began his career outside of The Rawls Group and went to work for Capitas Financial. While with Capitas, Champ provided consultative financial advice for affluent families.

After gaining valuable business experience and a deeper insight into finance and business, Champ was eager to join The Rawls Group team and fulfill his passion for helping family businesses succeed. Now working alongside his two sisters— Amy, Director of Operations and Client Services, and Kendall, Director of Marketing—Champ is being mentored by Loyd Rawls, his father, CEO, and Founder of The Rawls Group.

Champ is technically proficient in the financial planning field for closely-held businesses. Champ is insurance licensed and holds his Series 6 and 63 investment licenses. He is a Chartered Life Underwriter® and is on pace to become a Certified Financial Planner® in 2016. With his background in finance combined with his personal understanding of family business dynamics, Champ is destined to become a rock star in the succession planning world.
