Scott fills that definition completely.

In addition to his responsibilities as CIO of Personal Financial Management Services, he will work as a consultant to plan sponsors and personal financial management clients for intellicents in Kansas City. “One of the Personal Financial Management offerings that drew me to intellicents is the intellicents bionic advisor™,” said Wightman. “The intellicents bionic advisor™ offers clients a choice between a series of custom managed portfolios funded via low cost exchange traded funds (ETF’s). As a member of intellicents, I will be a key team leader in the human part of this service helping to manage our portfolios offered to clients.” intellicents has now added over 15 Personal Financial Advisors. This has resulted in muscling up the staff at existing locations, as well as opening new offices throughout the country. “Whether it is continuing to grow our Kansas City office or adding more people and more offices, we are just getting started...” added Brad Arends, CEO of intellicents.
