Knoxville, TN — May 03, 2022

Justin Goodbread, CFP®, Chief Strategy Officer for WealthSource Partners, LLC has been awarded the Exit Planning Institute’s (EPI) most prestigious award. On Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022, The EPI held its annual Excellence in Exit Planning Awards ceremony. One of 3 nominees, Justin was selected as this year’s Peter Christman Exit Planner of the Year. During the event, the EPI also named this year’s Leader of the Year, which Justin received in 2018, and Member of the Year awards.

Throughout his career, Goodbread has established himself as one of the leading voices in the financial services industry on financial planning for business owners through his work with clients and via Financially Simple, a portal of educational resources aimed at helping small business owners take control of their financial pictures.

“Being named the Peter Christman Exit Planner of the Year validates that I have found my passion. At the same time, it’s so surreal. So many good things happen to people who aren’t seeking them. I’ve never sought this nomination, but I just want to make an impact on people’s lives. My dad used to tell me, ‘No one outworks a Goodbread. All you’ve got is your name. It’s not a name that will be easily forgotten. So, you better keep your word. You had better represent the name well.’ So, to win this award, means I’m representing well.” - Justin Goodbread, CFP®, Chief Strategy Officer – WealthSource
